Franklin Mint; 1928 Stutz Black Hawk Boattail Speedster; Red & Black

The 24 Hours of le Mans
 

The 24 Hours of Le Mans is a grueling endurance battle that tests stamina, speed, and durability. In 1928 a Stutz Series BB Black Hawk Speedster, driven by Edouard Brisson and Robert Bloch, was entered in the French LeMans race. The vehicle did well, leading for most of the race. Half way through the 22nd hour, the gearbox broke on the Stutz and a Bentley 4.5-liter was able secure a first place finish. The Stutz was second, the best an American car had ever placed in this prestigious race.

This diecast model by Franklin Mint in 1:24 scale was sourced from a private collection in December 2019
