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.
The 1974 Stutz Blackhawk Coupe featured here is finished in stunning all black with a beautiful black leather interior. This magnificent Blackhawk has only been driven 65,315 actual miles and is one of the finest examples we have seen in years. It was recently acquired from its meticulous owner in Southern California; it 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. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of the very best examples of this iconic Stutz that can be found on the market today. I personally believe that the investment potential of this great Italian-made classic car will grow beyond your imagination. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013 and posting gains of 395-percent over the last 10-years.

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 and 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

Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above-mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in “AS IS” condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no verbal statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer. (ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for the Federal Reserve fee(s) charged for all incoming wires).
In regards to winning bidders and Buy It Now customers: All winning bidders and Buy It Now bidders are encouraged to fly out and personally inspect the vehicle. If you deem the vehicle is not as represented upon personal inspection, we will not only refund your deposit, but will also reimburse your airfare at the cost of a coach ticket. Feedback must be left at the time of delivery upon final inspection.
Pertaining to non-eBay winners: Anyone who has provided a deposit but whose purchase is still pending, please note that said vehicle will not be held and is subject to being sold at any time until all contingencies are removed and the purchase order is signed.
The advertised mileage represents the actual miles when the car was posted online. These vehicles are test-driven and actual mileage may vary at the time of sale.
All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. We do not manufacture our product. Each vehicle’s brand has its strengths, styles, tendencies, and shortcomings. Despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or a previous owner’s diligence in care of said vehicle. Due to this reason, all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. There are no mechanical guarantees, expressed or implied.
Daniel Schmitt & Co. reserves the right to end the auction at any time.
