Old School Cool
One of the reasons that this 1937 Pierce-Arrow Model C Travelodge is so impressive is the fact that it is one of just twenty known to still exist and it is in excellent condition. Billed as the ideal partner to a Classic Pierce-Arrow motorcar, this superb looking offering came about when many of the American luxury automakers used inventive tactics in order to survive the Great Depression. Not many were more innovative than Pierce-Arrow, which decided to build a luxurious travel trailer to accompany its automobiles and this is your chance to get your hands on one courtesy of RM Sotheby’s.
With this excellent lot from RM Sotheby’s you’re not just getting the stunning trailer, there are plenty of little period touches included in the sale as well. This includes a blue speckleware dining set, a Philco table radio, and a three-piece set of leather luggage, amongst others, which does an admirable job of completing its wonderfully detailed presentation and traditional look and feel that will add a touch of golden age of travel authenticity to any road trip you take it on.
With a guide price of between $40-60k, the 1937 Pierce-Arrow Model C Travelodge might not come cheap but with just 20 known to be in existence, it represents an unparalleled chance to get your hands on a piece of automotive history. This breathtaking trailer is over 80 years old but still remains in an excellent condition and will make for a road trip like no other if you’re the one lucky enough to get your hands on it when it goes under the hammer.
