1931→1934 Stutz DV-32

The last model made by Stutz was the DV32. They produced this model from 1931 to 1934 and outfitted it some of the best American bodies of the period.

The DV32 used a version of the straight-eight engine modified by Charles “Pop” Greuter to have double overhead camshafts and hemispherical combustion chambers and 4 valves per cylinder. Thus the name ‘Dual Valve-32’ was lent to the model name.

Power was send to the rear wheels through a Warner four-speed manual transmission.

In its short production run, up to around 100 DV32s were produced. Some of the more desirable coachwork included the Convertible Victoria by Rollston and Speedster by LeBaron. After the DV32 production, the luxury car market completely dried up and with the entire Stutz brand.
