An immensely desirable “Vertical Eight” Stutz with gorgeous, lightweight 2-Seat Speedster coachwork by Robbins. CCCA National First Prize winner, recently out of 40 years of continuous ownership. A sporty Full Classic suitable for a wide variety of spirited motoring events.
Sporting handsome two-seat speedster coachwork by Robbins, this striking 1928 Stutz BB is a marvelous example of this quintessential pre-war American sports car. Restored some years ago to a high standard and maintained in superb condition, this rare and exciting Stutz was in the care of one owner for the past 40 years. While in his hands, it was restored to a high standard, winning a CCCA National First Prize and appearing regularly in the club’s West Coast events. Presented today in a lovely combination of two-tone red with straw yellow coach lines over a black interior and top, it remains in excellent condition inside and out. The body is skinned in aluminum from the cowl back to keep weight in check, and it is particularly rakish in profile. Equipment includes a radiator mascot, dual side-mount spares, cowl lamps, folding windscreen, wire wheels, and newer Firestone black wall tires. The paint and brightwork quality is excellent, with a smooth finish and beautiful detailing, still appearing glossy and highly attractive, belying the age of the restoration.
