Early Stutz Engine Numbers

Hi,

Apologies if this topic has been covered already but I am new to Stutz cars. Question.... for a 1919-1920 Speedway 4 with an engine "as fitted by the factory", should the engine number match the "Car Number" on the dashboard plaque precisely? Alternatively, were they not matched by the factory and one would expect the two numbers to be in a reasonable range of each other.

Thank you.

Peter

The platform you are asking about is very rare, and there are not too many experts. I recommend joining the Stutz club. Also buying the book The Splendid Stutz. The club has technical help and a roster of known cars......which you can gleen information from.

Thanks "edinmass". I will certainly join the Stutz Club and look for the book.

 

Keith, can you advise where the chassis stamp would be found on the speedway 4? So, should all three numbers match up (chassis, engine and dashboard plaque)? I know that some manufacturers pulled assembled engines from a store during the assembly process such that the engine numbers don't precisely match the car numbers but are in a reasonable range of each other e.g. +/- 150. 

Thanks again,

Peter
