The Stutz Company was revitalized in 1923 when it was joined by industry veteran Frederick E. Moskovics and the introduction of its new Vertical Eight, also known as the Series AA, for 1926. The new single overhead camshaft eight-cylinder engine was joined by hydraulic brakes, safety glass, a lower ride height, and more. Continual development brought Lockheed hydraulic brakes for 1927 and displacement and power increased for the Series BB of 1928. That was the same year Stutz contested the 24 Hours of LeMans, where Stutz led much of the race and finished second only to Bentley.

This 1928 Speedster drew 115 horsepower from its 298 cubic-inch overhead eight-valve engine and had water-cooled exhaust valves and hydraulic brakes. An underslung worm-drive rear-end differential allowed a lower body, as shown by this BB Robbins Speedster coachwork.

In 1953, this car was purchased in Brooklyn, New York, by William Ruger. In 1958, Mr. Ruger sold the car to Mr. Spotsky, a resident of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, who participated with it in many CCCA CARavan tours among other events. In 1969, it was purchased by Stearns Motor Museum of Irwin, Pennsylvania, which retained the car until circa 1982, when it was acquired by Johnny Pascucci of Meriden, Connecticut. In 1996, it came into the ownership of the current caretaker.

The new owner treated the car to a restoration. The work was completed in time for the Stutz to be shown at the 1998 AACA show at Hershey, Pennsylvania, where it won First in Class. In 1999, the Stutz went on to win its class at the CCCA National meeting and later that year the Speedster was invited to be shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, where it was awarded Third in Class. When Stutz was the featured marque at Pebble Beach in 2011, this car was invited back where it again placed third.

The car has a complete set of side curtains, a luggage trunk, the original-specification Zenith 105D carburetor, and the original driveshaft.
