In 1968 James O’Donnell, a New York banker, joined forces with retired Chrysler designer Virgil Exner to revive the Stutz Motor Company that dominated racetracks and land speed records in the first part of the 20th century. The new Blackhawk was first prototyped in Italy by Ghia at a cost of over $300,000 U.S. dollars. Exner, known for his classic lines, penned a car that featured a protruding spare tire out of the trunk, side pipe style exhaust, lavish chrome work and freestanding headlamps – a nod to the original Stutz automobiles. Based on a GM drivetrain, the completed cars featured a handmade heavy gauge steel body built by the finest Italian craftsmen. Over 1,500-man hours would go into every car that crossed the assembly line in Italy. The final car debuted in January of 1970 in New York City. Its lavish design and well-appointed leather interior that featured 24 karat gold-plated trim attracted many notable buyers including entertainers such as Dean Martin, Lucille Ball, Elvis Presley, and Sammy Davis Jr. Production would end in 1987 after only approximately 550 cars were assembled, but the iconic style and excellent construction of the Stutz Blackhawk is what welcomes the marque into many private collections around the world today.
Our 1977 VI Stutz Blackhawk Coupe is finished in all black with a beautiful cream leather interior. This magnificent Blackhawk has only been driven 9,000 actual miles and is one of the finest examples you can find. It was acquired from its owner in Switzerland and is one of approximately 550 built, was recently serviced and it is ready to be driven or shown. It comes fitted with nearly every available option including factory air conditioning, chrome wire wheels, cruise control, power windows, power disc-brakes, power sunroof and much more. Blackhawks were produced in limited numbers and accompanied with a price tag similar to that of a Rolls-Royce.
