1932 Stutz DV-32 Super Bearcat by Weymann

During the early 1930s, the Stutz car had moved away from its initial sporty character and transitioned into a luxurious vehicle. Despite this, the company still offered the Super Bearcat for those seeking a sports car, which was built on a shortened chassis and had a two-passenger body by the Weymann American Body Company.

The Super Bearcat was designed to resemble the muscular lines of the Mercedes-Benz SSK, and about 20 were built with either traditional aluminum or fabric outer skin. This particular Super Bearcat is one of only two with fabric-paneled bodies still in existence.

The Weymann signature was used for the lighter version, which was originally created by the French parent company for competition coachwork and famously employed on the Stutzes that ran at Le Mans in 1929.
