THE STUTZ MODEL G

Stutz will forever be "The Car That Made Good in a Day", a reputation assembled by Harry Stutz – as he assembled the automobiles that bore his name – around the performance of the rude, rugged Wisconsin T-head four-cylinder powered race car that came home eleventh in the 1911 Indianapolis 500.

The Stutz Series G was one of the last designed and built under Harry Stutz's direct supervision before he was shunted aside by the Ryan. Powered by the T-head Wisconsin four with 360 cubic inches, dual ignition and four valves per cylinder, it developed 60 brake horsepower at only 1,500 rpm and immense torque at any speed. The 3-speed transmission was integral with the rear axle and differential, a system that Harry Stutz designed himself very early in the marque's history and which he favored. Suspension was by semi-elliptical leaf springs front and rear and the steering wheel was on the righthand side, an arrangement which Stutz preferred for years.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The acquisition of this Stutz by the consigner's father is indebted to the keen enthusiast eye of a one Henry Austin Clark Junior. A letter including photos dated October 18, 1960 from Clark tipped off the vehicle's whereabouts and noted condition. Soon after, it was purchased in Newburgh, New York from a woman by the name of Mrs. Frederick Small. The Stutz was running and driving at that time, but it was decided to trailer the car back home. Much like the Marmon also on offer, maintenance was carried out mostly without help from third parties and was enjoyed several times a year until 1995. It is further believed that the car was repainted and reupholstered by a shop in New York City sometime after its purchase in 1960.

As shown within the photos above, the body has been modified to a 'Bearcat look.' As such, the doors have been replaced with a low line gunnel and the shifter/brake mechanisms have been moved outboard. As the car was fully operational when it was stored away in 1995, the Stutz presents as a fully complete vehicle. Today, the car presents in fair condition, with the paint showing much of the vehicle's age.

This sporting and sleek Stutz presents as a wonderful restoration opportunity for anyone looking to get behind the wheel of one of the most legendary marques of early motoring.
