Hello Yellowriv,

I believe you are correct.

Therefore the tag is on or from a STuTZ Blackhawk and the L7 indicates a Cabriolet Coupe.  There is no break down of the Car No. in the Splendid STuTZ.

What seems to be common to the Car No.on other Blackhawks is the 4DW but the digits that follow are different per car.

Assuming the same sequence of FEDCO numbers was used on the Blackhawk series of cars in 1929, the car number would be 416032 - this number should be found stamped somewhere on a frame member of the car.  For Stutz roadsters of the same year the number was stamped on the passenger side left bumper mount casting and the front engine mount frame bracket.

Everyone,

I have to correct my earlier comment where I indicated that the tag was a Blackhwak tag.  It is not a Blackhawk tag even though it has what appeared to me to be Backhawk information stamped on it.

The tag that was posted is the same tag on my 1925 693.

Here is a Blackhawk tag.
