1971 Stutz Blackhawk Duplex Coupe one of only 2 made For Sale
An extremely rare 1971 Series 1 Stutz Blackhawk Duplex Coupe. A complete Pontiac Grand Prix bought at retail was shipped to Carrozzeria Padane in Modena, Italy. The entire body was discarded along with interior and instruments, and a new body and interior were hand-fabricated, sharing nothing in common with the donor car. Twenty-five were built in the first series in 1971 with a shocking $35,000 price tag (4 times the price of a Lincoln Mk3), of which only 14 remain today. Experts believe just two were built, with this example thought to be the only one constructed by Padane. Carrozzeria Pardane mainly specialised in busses and campers but in addition to the Blackhawk also built the Maserati Mistral, Indy and Bora. No other car is quite so exclusive as this one. Unfortunately the Stutz Company haemorrhaged money every day of its existence. In an effort to safe money Stutz from 1972 decided to build their cars on the base of GM cars, loosing much of its beautiful alluring lines. The first Blackhawk was sold to no one less than Elvis Presley himself. Other celebrities such Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball owned one. The Shah of Iran even owned 12! The bodywork is nice and straight with correct body panel fittings. All chrome details and decorative elements are as good as new. Under the hood resides a Pontiac 400-CI V-8 with a GM Turbo-Hydramatic transmission. The car only has 33,863 miles on the clock and is in exemplary condition. This Stutz is absolutely unique, especially in this superb condition!
