I agonized over buying this when it first came up for sale 3 years ago. The problem for me was the short time interval. It was selling and it I needed to decide within a few days which I really never feel comfortable with. It is very cool. I guess I would paint it but leave everything else original. It is interesting to compare to the Dietrich sedan. I think the Dietrich is better looking but the DOHC Stutz engine is really something.

I have the DV32 in a 33 Boattail and a 32 Derham bodied cabriolet. The boattail is a very fast and fun car to drive. I would say it is more powerful than my Duesenberg. I am sure the weight of the big Dual cowl body on the Duesenberg plays a big part of that. I would recomend any one looking for a full classic with a sports car feel to look at the Stutz DV32.

harley: My attempt at creating a thread with an attachment of the Royale stationary does not seem to allow the attachment to open for view. What did I not do correctly? This is my first time on a forum so it is all new to me. (Harley)
