Dan Steckler worked for the Stutz dealership in California.
In 1976, the dealership had the idea to convert a non-selling green Blackhawk into the very first Stutz Convertible.
Perhaps one reason was that Rolls-Royce started the
production of the Camargue,
so the standard Blackhawk wasn't the most expensive production car anymore.
The conversion of a coupe into a convertible is not just to cut off the roof.
As usual, Dan did also a lot of detailing in the interior.
Creating a canvas-top for a unique convertible is also a very special job.
The roll-out, before the car was sold to Evel Knievel.
Very impressive, like every Stutz...
The real convertible feeling, without a roll-bar.
The roll-bar was added to the production convertible, named Bearcat, due to safety laws.
Unfortunately, we still don't have the VIN of this car.
Another Stutz with license plate "Stutz 1"...
