Stutz Blackhawk III

The Stutz Blackhawk III built in Italy by Carrozzeria Saturn.

Vehicle Overview

The Stutz Blackhawk III stands out as the longest-produced model in the Stutz lineup, spanning from 1973 to 1979 and achieving a production run of 300 vehicles, making it the most successful series for the brand. Based on the third series of the Pontiac Grand Prix, introduced in late summer 1972, the Blackhawk III retained the luxurious essence of its predecessors while incorporating distinctive design modifications. Compared to earlier models, the Blackhawk III featured notable design updates. One significant change was the elimination of the small side window, enhancing the car’s sleek profile. The C-pillar was widened, contributing to a more imposing presence on the road. A distinctive feature of the third series was its steeply sloping rear end, culminating in a high bumper, with the taillights positioned below the bumper for a classic aesthetic reminiscent of the first series. Under the hood, the Stutz Blackhawk III retained the formidable 7.5-liter eight-cylinder engine sourced from Pontiac. This engine, a hallmark of power and performance during its time, delivered between 180 to 200 horsepower. Notably, the engine configuration remained unaltered and was not subject to tuning or modification, ensuring reliability and consistency in performance. Assembled with meticulous craftsmanship in Italy by Carrozzeria Saturn, renowned for its expertise in bespoke automotive construction, the Stutz Blackhawk III epitomized luxury and exclusivity. Its blend of American muscle with European craftsmanship appealed to affluent clientele seeking a unique and prestigious automobile. The Stutz Blackhawk III’s extended production span and its distinctive design elements underscored Stutz’s commitment to delivering timeless elegance and performance in the luxury automotive market, solidifying its reputation as a pioneer in bespoke automotive craftsmanship.
