The first owner of this Bearcat was located in Japan!

Stutz Bearcat

He bought the car in the United States, than the car was shipped to Japan.

I think these were added to fit the Japanese law.


After more than 20 years, the car had made not even 3000 miles...

Jim's Bearcat

The car was offered for sale in June 2001.
In July 2002, the car was shown at Ebay, and in January 2003 it was offered again.

In December 2005, we relocated the car in the Los Angeles area,
it was still for sale by the first owner.
Jim Milliken took the chance to buy the car in March 2006.


After rechroming, and a lot of detailing, the car looks even better.
