1973 Stutz Blackhawk Coupe
This highly sought-after 1973 Stutz Blackhawk is an original 41k mile example out of single ownership. Silver with black leather interior. The car runs and drives well with a strong running V8 and automatic transmission. The paint and chrome are presentable but the interior is showing some wear at this point and will require some attention. The underside is very clean and solid and the body is super straight and honest. A captivating and increasingly collectible neo-classic. As marque revivals go the resuscitation of the Stutz brand in 1969 was perhaps more a case of finding a name to fit a product, but it was surely testament to the original companys success that the felt that the company and a product name such as Blackhawk would still have significance after nearly two generations of absence in the car market. Famed designer Virgil Exner penned a design that was sure to draw attention. Built on a contemporary Pontiac chassis and powered by their big block engine, some 425bhp was on tap to propel the all new luxurious Stutz. Elvis Presley purchased the first one, and would later buy three others, while a number of celebrities also picked up on this fashion accessory, including Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin as well as Lucille Ball and Liberace. Various iterations followed, with different GM running gear, while the cost of purchasing one ballooned to more than $30,000. This Blackhawk Coupe is powered by a Pontiac 455 cubic inch V8, coupled to a three speed automatic transmission. This Stutz is sure to turn a few heads when you take it out. Between its performance, design, and details it is sure to provide good entertainment for the driver too!
