Sandra Ilene West

Beverly Hills, California

Texas oil heiress

In a press-release from about 1976, Stutz made the above statement.

Sorry, I haven't any picture of her car, but an interesting story...

Sandra West died in late 1976 or early 1977, aged 37.
She was, before her death, very interested in Egyptian history, and so she stated in her last will of 1972 that she wanted to be burried in her...
(NO, not in her Stutz!)

A court decision was made by judge Franklin Dana.
Sandra Ilene West was burried in her light-blue 1964 Ferrari 250GT.
The car was stored in a casket-like box. The funeral cost $ 17,000.
