Stutz 1932

 

USA

  Stutz announces the new DA-32—the first stock car under $10,000 employing the dual-valve, double overhead-camshaft principle.
  It has the velvety smoothness of a Sixteen—without the added cost or complication of eight extra cylinders.
  It has a far higher rate of acceleration than has been found possible through any other principle to date.
  It is one of the fastest stock cars in the world. Therefore, it should be the safest car in the world. It is.
  Naturally, a car of its accomplishments should be the smartest car in the world. It's one of the smartest, we know.
  The Stutz DV-32—the new super-power quality car—is now on display in leading Stutz salesrooms.
