1930 Stutz SV16

History

The less powerful of the two Stutz Eights, the Stutz SV16 was introduced in 1932 and was produced until 1936. These were the final years of the Stutz motor company. With only 113 hp, the SV16 did feature two long chassis that carried the same luxurious bodies much like the famous DV32, and a twin-ignition engine much like the more contemporary Nash unit. Unfortunately it wasn't a particularly light automobile, weighing in at over two tons.

The body itself of the Stutz SV 16 was magnificent and all Stutz models are CCCA Classics. Featuring graceful coachwork both open and closed, from 1932 until 1936 the Stutz SV16 was a beautiful automobile and there was also the existence of a Bearcat model. Weighing anywhere between 4,448lbs and 5,346lbs, the SV1 featured a ohc 1-8 engine, 322,0 cid and priced new ranged from $1,895 to $5,346. Unfortunately the SV16 was mechanically complex and less than 300 units were ever produced.

Only 35,000 vehicles were ever produced during Stutz's 25-year history. All Stutz vehicles produced during the Classis Era from 1925 until 1948 are officially recognized as Full Classics TM, ‘as defined by the Classic Car Club of America', as a final tribute.
