Boattail Speedster
The chassis on the new Stutz Vertical Eight had a central lubrication system and underslung worm drive which gave it a low appearance and allowed for low and sensuous bodies. After winning many races, the Black Hawk Speedster was named the 1927 AAA Stock Car Champion. The following year, the car was labeled as America's fastest production car after setting records at Daytona Beach.

This boattail speedster is believed to have been built for the Stutz race car driver Frank Lockhart. Lockhart was killed during a land speed record attempt at Daytona in the Stutz Black Hawk Special. He never took delivery of the car; it was retained by the company until 1935 when the company folded.

Powering the Stutz is a 289 cubic-inch inline eight-cylinder engine that delivers 115 horsepower. The wheelbase measures 131 inches and the car weighs approximately 3500 pounds. The two-passenger Black Hawk Speedster was priced at $4895.
