1972 Blackhawk

In early 2010, I got in contact with Dr. Ernest Follico, he is the owner of this beautiful 1972 Blackhawk.


Unfortunately, we don't know the first owner of the car,


Back in 1989, Dr. Follico bought the car from the son of Charles Painter.
Charles Painter won the car at Las Vegas, years ago.
At that point, the car was white with a canary-yellow(!) stripe.

Ernest Follico repainted the car in a burgundy that comes from Mercedes.

In early 2014, Dr. Follico sold it to a car dealer.

In June 2014, a friend sent me the following snapshot:

photo by F. Vollenweider. Thanks!

The photo was taken on a Swiss highway.

Thanks to unique details of the car it was easy to identify.
With some research, we were able to find the new owner in 2015.

The car is owned by famous Swiss artist Rolf Knie.

In February 2016, I was able to see this Blackhawk, and take a couple of photos.

The current owner has another Stutz, a 1980 IV-Porte, in his collection:
