Coachwork by LeBaron
Please note that this vehicle is titled by its engine number.
From its debut at the inaugural running of the Indianapolis 500 in 1911, Stutz cultivated an obsession with speed. Following its 1927 Stevens Trophy Cup and AAA Stock Car Champion wins and its epic 1928 Le Mans battle, the Indianapolis firm introduced its improved M model for 1929, exemplified by this most dashing offering fitted with custom coachwork.
Increased power came courtesy of the enlarged Vertical Eight engine incorporating the Challenger cylinder head and manifold improvements. When coupled with the new four-speed gearbox, the M series delivered the best performance to date. Its mechanical prowess is complemented with LeBaron’s rakish tonneau cowl coachwork. Fitted to the generous 145" wheelbase chassis, the body features cut-down front doors, a hinged rear cowl panel, and dual fold-down windshields, transporting its four passengers in sporting style.
Long part of the famed A.K. Miller Stutz collection, this car benefited from a careful restoration and is presented in understated tones of dark red with black fenders, painted wire wheels fitted with blackwall tires, a tan canvas top, and leather upholstery. The Stutz is accompanied by a set of tools, jack, and a matching tan canvas cover for the rear-mounted trunk. Configured with its top up or down, or perhaps with both windshields lowered for the ultimate in open-air motoring, its next driver, as well as its passengers, can look forward to a most exhilarating driving experience.
