Frenchman Charles Weymann championed the use of fabric bodies. The metal panels were replaced with padded fabric, usually Zapon imitation leather, over cotton-padded wood which created a unique matte finish that was somewhat soft to the touch. The patent bodywork was both durable, quiet, and lightweight.

American automaker Stutz realized the value that European styling flair would add to its products on both sides of the Atlantic. In the late 1920s, the Weymann American Body Company (also of Indianapolis) began to produce the 'Chateau Series' of closed fabric bodies for Stutz chassis. Each model carried distinct names inspired by the Riviera locales.

This Model MB example wears a Versailles body by Weymann. It is a four-door fabric sports sedan and one of six cars that are believed to have been built with this body. Only three are known to still exist. The car is original and unrestored, with the exception of interior fabric that was replaced long ago. The body still wears what is believed to be its original Zapon, as well as the original paint on the fenders.

The current owner acquired the car in Pennsylvania in 2005. It made an appearance at the 2007 Milwaukee Masterpiece, where it was awarded Second in Class.

Power is from a 322 cubic-inch single overhead-camshaft eight-cylinder engine offering 113 horsepower. It has a three-speed manual transmission and vacuum-assisted four-wheel hydraulic brakes.
