  • In 1928, Stutz was riding the wave of success that came from their second place finish at the 24 hours of Le Mans. This victory helped to increase sales and pushed Stutz to further enhance their engines. The new 8-cylinder “Safety Stutz” was the result of engineer Charles Greuter. This mechanical marvel was based on a design he had previously done for Excelsior and featured a chain driven overhead camshaft, dual ignition, cross flow cylinder head and a dual throat carburetor. It’s 322 cubic inches produced 113 horsepower and went on to propel Stutz to a 10th place finish at the 1930 Indianapolis 500, an incredible feat for a factory built car. However, this success would be short-lived as Stutz production would cease completely by 1935 with only 35,000 cars manufactured–very few of which remain today. It’s approximated that less than 1500 were built in 1930. The Series M debuted in 1929 and offered two chassis lengths of either 134 1/2” or 145” long. Both were subject to several coachbuilders, LeBaron being one of the most noted.

    The 1930 Stutz Series M Cabriolet by LeBaron offered here is an elegant two door Cabriolet, with aluminum rear rumble seat bodywork that is finished in Black and a Butterscotch leather interior. It spent most of its life in California, before moving on to a prominent collection in Europe. Upon arrival in Italy, this great classic's incredibly original condition was easily detectable. In keeping with the Italian tradition, it was decided that chassis M8-46-CD25E would undergo a sympathetic restoration, dedicated to highlighting just how incredibly original this 1930 Stutz was.

    A complete frame off mechanical restoration was performed by the specialists at Dimar Restoration in Italy, whose expertise in conservation, rather than full restoration, was perfectly suited for the staggering amount of hours and work that were to be performed. The frame was removed from the body for the first time in the car’s history. All mechanical components, including the rare 4-speed gearbox, differential, hydraulic brakes and suspension components, were renewed by Gianni Torelli’s specialist restoration company, in the Emilia Romagna province of Italy. Torelli also rebuilt the legendary Stutz' 8 engine with new pistons, connecting rods and valve train, even going as far as breaking in the engine on test stand and fully tuning it before placing it back in the vehicle. Meanwhile, the Stutz’s electrical system was reworked, including all the original instruments, which were brought back to working condition. Dimar completely disassembled the body, cleaning and polishing all the trim by hand. Chrome work was kept to a bare minimum and, when completed, was finished to match the rest of the Stutz’s appearance (most of which still wears the original paint). The original leather interior was professionally cleaned and preserved as much as possible, requiring only a few new pieces. The cabin was completed by a new convertible top that, when down, only compliments the optional aluminum bodywork with rumble seat. New Period correct 20” tires were fitted and the vehicle still retains its original Philco AM radio. Together, Dimar and Torelli achieved a 1930 Stutz Series M Cabriolet of an incredible originality that is proudly highlighted while being on top of a fully rejuvenated platform. Its charm and character are only matched by how well it performs, and this example would make an excellent vehicle for rallies and tours!

    After the restoration was completed, this 1930 Stutz Series M Cabriolet was an award recipient at several Italian Concours, including the “FIVA Preservation Cup” from the 2011 Unique Special One’s in Florence and the “Preservation and Restoration award” at the 2011 Castello di Miramare Concours in Trieste. Its incredible condition is likely to make it an excellent candidate for other preservation class Concours shows in the future. We are proud to offer this 1930 Stutz Series M Cabriolet by LeBaron to the most sophisticated collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates this great classic motorcar!

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
