Stutz History

1930 Stutz Model MB

Share on:

The Stutz, built in Indianapolis, earned its reputation on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Throughout its existence, the company was known for sporty - and fast - automobiles. In November 1929 Stutz built the first ten of what was to be a run of 25 supercharged chassis. The depression caused the company to cancel the order for additional superchargers, so as a result no more were ever built. OF the 10, only three have survived.

This convertible coupe, with custom coachwork by Derham, is rare since it carries a factory-installed supercharger. Only 10 of these were built in November 1929 (most, if not all, were titled in 1930) and few remain today. The Stutz in-line eight featured overhead valves and overhead camshaft. Cars were available on 134.5- and 145-inch wheelbase chassis; this example is built on the latter.

This convertible coupe is an English bodied coupe and a racecar. The current owner first bought this car on his 16th birthday in 1947. He drove it to California from his parents' home in Cleveland, Ohio, up and down the west coast and back to Cleveland (about 6,000 miles) in the summer of the same year. It was a daily driver throughout his high school career. A home restoration was performed on the car in 1954. It continued to be used regularly until 1964, when it was sold. In 2004, the car was re-acquired and given a restoration to exact factory specifications. The work was completed in September 2011. The color scheme is exactly as it was when Derham completed the body in 1930.
