In March 2005, a friend informed me about The Klemantaski Collection.
In their long list of available photos, they had listed
early pictures of the Stutz automobiles,
taken at the Padane factory.
The photos show the very first prototype, built by Ghia,
the second prototype, built by Padane, later sold to Elvis Presley,
the Duplex, the very first 4-door sedan,
and some early production-models of the Blackhawk.
Collection allowed me to show thumbnails of these photos.

They have also photos taken at the 1965 International
Motor Show of Torino, Italy.
Well, of course there was no Stutz, but...
Ghia presented the Exner-Bugatti!
I hope you will enjoy the thumbnails (there are more than 220!):
