1919 Pierce-Arrow named Best in Show during 2015 Pinehurst Concours

Robert Jepson Jr. of Savannah, Georgia took home the top prize at the 3rd annual Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance with his 1919 Pierce-Arrow Model 66 A-4 Tourer.

The vehicle was customized by Don Lee Coach & Bodyworks in Los Angeles for the famous silent movie actor Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle.

It has the largest engine made for automobiles at that time, sporting 6 cylinders and 825 cubic inch displacement. Its tires, including side mounts, are all white and measure 6 x 36. The car stands 7 feet tall at its highest point.

The car receives a total “nuts and bolts” restoration in 2007 by Lon Kruger of Scottsdale, Arizona.
