1914 Stutz Bearcat

The Stutz Bearcat was a well-known American sports car of the pre and post WW1 period. Essentially the Bearcat was a shorter (120” wheelbase vs 130”) lighter version of the standard Stutz passenger cars chassis.

The colorful history and rakish image of the Stutz Bearcat made it one of the better known antique cars to later generations of Americans. It was often associated with the Roaring 20s and college students of that period.

This car came from the A.K. Miller collection, fully disassembled by Harvey Cater. It is equipped with a Wisconsin 360 ci, 60 hp engine with a split fire ignition system.

1938 Peugeot 402 Darl’mat

The Darl’mat was the brainchild of Emile Darl’mat and a Peugeot dealer in France. It was intended to boost Peugeot’s image by offering a lightweight body, unique aerodynamic styling and a sporting engine.

At the time, the Darl’mat roadster was unlike anything else on the road and was occasionally raced in period. The coachwork was designed by Georges Paulin and fabricated by Marcel Pourout.

After being restored in 2004 this car won its class at Pebble Beach.

1938 Darracq Talbot Lago T-150-C

In 1936 the Paris salon introduced a wild Delahaye roadster with coachwork by Figoni and Falaschi and designed by Geo Hamm. Delahaye built 12 of these special roadsters and this car was the only Darracq/Talbot Lago built by Figoni in the Geo Hamm style.

This car was special ordered by The Count and Countess of Covilha in Portugal and was owned by the same family until 1975. The car was completely restored in 2005-2006 and has been shown at Pebble Beach and Amelia Island and has been on loan to various Art Museums for their Art Deco displays.
