Hi Jonathan,

I'm A.J. (Alphonse J.) my dad, Alphonse P. at 84 is not really computer literate! I will scan and post my image today for comparison. Where are you seeing the engine shot that shows the Jones Special with a DV32 engine?

regards,

A.J.

I stand corrected as my image is the same as the one posted above. Here it is with the writing from the back. The pictures comes from a scrap book which indicates that in 1959 the car was owned by Tommy Wolfe of Maywood Calif.

Jonathan Richards replied the topic: 1930 STUTZ MODEL M TORPEDO / JONES' STUTZ SPECIAL INDY CAR
After reading the two posts by A. J. San Clemente this afternoon and the
post by Mike Huffman yesterday afternoon it occurs to me that Mike may
have been questioning whether the Jones' Stutz Special offered by the
Blackhawk people is the same car as that shown in the black & white
photo next to the Rubber Bowl at Akron, Ohio. Who knows? The notes
on the back of the "scrap book" picture as sent by A.J. seems to indicate
it is BUT the black & white photo of the actual Indy prepared car parked
in the pits along the east side of the main straight of the Indianapolis
Motor Speedway looks far more like the Akron car than the one for sale.
It appears that this Stutz had an historic as well as a checkered career.
What thoughts do the rest of you have on this question? Richards in Iowa

I have a picture of this car indicating that it was also owned by Tommy Wolfe in the late 1950s.

yes, the black DV Bearcat exists. Harrah's ended up with it and it was sodl at one of the auctions in teh early 1980's. It is now in a private collection and still largely original.
