The car...renowned STUTZ BEARCAT...
the status sports car of long ago. "THE CAR THAT MADE GOOD IN ONE DAY",
was the title given to
Harry C. Stutz in 1911 as he placed 11th in the Indy 500.
The Stutz Bearcat
is about to once again growl down the straights
scream around the curves of America's roads.
The climax to a life-long dream of
builder, Howard D. Williams of Oklahoma is about to happen.
Howard Williams first developed a reproduction of the 1914 Stutz Bearcat
automobile while he was President of the Cord International Distributing
1960's. The idea for the following event took root prior to the
finish of the first prototype which appeared in the Nieman Marcus
Christmas catalog for "The Man Who Has Everything".
The development of the car started in 1967. A special type of road rally
race using these and other antique automobiles was first proposed along
with the introduction of the Stutz After Shave and Cologne at the same
time, along with a race poster, T-shirt and other accessory items.
These were all complimentary products to help promote the introduction
of the car.
As the 1914 Stutz Bearcat automobile was
continuing to be developed, which went through several prototype
development stages to the very attractive model we have today, the event
as an advertising promotion has actually overshadowed the car itself. In
1969 the Stutz Bearcat was
featured on the Cover of the International Trail Magazine.
