Power is from a 50 horsepower engine and a there is a 2-passenger rumble seat. The car has been detailed to represent the HCS roadster used as the pace car for the 1921 Indy 500.
After Harry C. Stutz resigned from the company bearing his name, he announced a new companying using the initials from his name would be formed. The H.C.S. Motor Car Company was formed in Indianapolis, Indiana was produced vehicles from 1920 to 1925.

The first H.C.S. vehicles were the Series II that had a 120 inch wheelbase and was powered by a four-cylinder engine that offered 50 horsepower. Two bodystyles were available, a four-passenger touring and a roadster.

In 1923, Tommy Milton drove an H.C.S. to victory at the Indianapolis 500, though it was comprised of many components from Miller.

The last H.C.S. production cars were built in 1925. The H.C.S. Cab Manufacturing Company went into receivership a short time later, in 1927. The bad news continued, as Harry C. Stutz died in 1930.
