This Brunn & Company custom bodied Stearns-Knight Convertible Victoria is the top-of-the line 'J' model. Only six have survived and this is the only open example. Powered by a unique and massive 1,260 lb. sleeve-valve engine, which is capable of propelling this 6,000 lb. car to over 100 mph. It was sold new at the L.A. Auto Show in February 1929 for $10,000 to the original owner who kept it for 3 decades. Only 10 months after purchase the F.B. Stearns Company closed its doors forever. The Stearns marque competed with Duesenberg, Rolls-Royce and Mercedes at the high end of the luxury market.

This car was found in a barn in Northern California, after 85 years of service and over 237,000 miles, and purchased from the second owner. The current plan is to preserve this wonderful time machine in its current state.
