I am always excited when I get a call back to Old Iron Works to photograph one of their amazing cars. This one was even more special than normal though, as the car on the list was none other than the prized 1930 Stutz Model M Supercharged Coupe by Lancefield. One of only a few ever made, it is currently the only known survivor of its type. In absolutely flawless condition, it is really a sight to be seen.
We traveled back out to Old Iron Works this past week, this time to photograph a beautiful 1932 Stutz DV-32 Convertible Victoria. The original Stutz name was applied to the company that produced very high end cars for the wealthiest Americans, starting in 1911 and ending in 1935. It was a real competitor to Duesenberg, who also sold some of the best American cars that money could buy for the time. The “DV” in the name stands for “dual valve”, and represents the 32 valves in the overhead cam straight eight cylinder engine. Freshly restored about 4-5 years ago, this model is a gorgeous example, and probably one of the best remaining in the country.
