Stutz Color Samples

The Stutz dealers had, next to brochures, of course, some paint samples,
to help buyers to choose the color for their personal Stutz.

In the early years, Stutz used paint from a company named "Glidden".

Dupont color samples

Of course, these colors were only used for the exterior,
but the customers also had to decide about the interior color, that means the leather...

The leather came from Connolly, the same company that also sold leather to other luxury car manufacturers, like Rolls-Royce.

After being stored for a very looong time, I first have to work on the leather samples,
before I will be able to show some color-pictures... Sorry!
