What would become the first Stutz automobile debuted at the inaugural Indianapolis 500 in 1911 netting a respectable 11th place finish in a field of more powerful cars. Stutz became known for its sporting character and several stock car, speed and endurance records. Later leadership would attempt to tone down the performance image, but it would be revived towards the end of the company’s run. The DV32 would be the final series of Stutz automobiles with an exotic engine that would rival the power of the multi-cylinder engines of other luxury marques.

The original owner of this car, financier Arthur N. Powers, certainly liked the performance image, owning three Stutz cars at the time. Though one was a limousine with a driver, he became known for leaving his Chicago office taking the wheel of one of the Stutzes and racing the evening train to Kankakee. The car would be shipped to Arizona where the family wintered, and was subsequently sold to a car dealer there. It would stay in that family for decades. What is remarkable about this car is that it is believed to have been operational for its entire life. Rather than restoring it, the original finishes and upholstery are being conserved.
