The Stutz Motor Car Company

Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, it wasn't long before Harry C. Stutz established that his Stutz brand had racing in its DNA. At the inaugural Indianapolis 500, Stutz's first car finished in 11th place. The result was indeed impressive, as the Stutz's engine was significantly smaller than most other competitors. And it was good for marketing; "The Car That Made Good in a Day" had been born.

Stutz went on to dominate American racing in the teens with the "White Squadron" racing team, and the Bearcat flagship model has always been considered one of the great icons of motoring. Despite market trends, Stutz never abandoned its sporting heritage.

While Harry Stutz eventually lost control of his firm, an equally visionary and brilliant man would fortunately arrive to fill his shoes: Fred Moskovics. Moskovics had forged a good reputation for himself during his previous tenure at Marmon, his influence leading to their most charismatic and high performance products to date. His automotive inspiration was heavily derived from the powerful and sophisticated machines coming from Europe: Alfa Romeo, Daimler, Bentley, Mercedes, and other potent Grand Touring machines fascinated him. Moskovics desired to produce an American car that could rival them, resulting in the introduction of the Stutz Vertical Eight in 1926. These would be good years for the brand, until the troubles of the Great Depression came around to haunt them in the 1930s.


The Motorcar Offered

The popular Vertical Eight was renamed 'SV-16' for 1932, but despite the new nomenclature the Depression took its toll on sales. This impressive SV-16 was built in 1933, near the end of the production run. In fact, it was one of only 80 cars produced by the company that year, and is therefore one of the last 100 Stutzes produced. These late cars benefit from an improved dashboard design with round instruments, and subtly-refined fenders.

A five-passenger sedan, the SV-16 features a low roofline and short body, giving it a light look that compliments its low-slung chassis. Here is a chance to own one of the ultimate and final examples of this celebrated marque – with plenty of room for friends and family to enjoy "The Car That Made Good in a Day".
