Model: Blackhawk Duplex Coupe
Fuel type: Petrol
Body Type: Coupé
An extremely rare 1971 Series 1 Stutz Blackhawk Duplex Coupe. A complete Pontiac Grand Prix bought at retail was shipped to Carrozzeria Padane in Modena, Italy. The entire body was discarded along with interior and instruments, and a new body and interior were hand-fabricated, sharing nothing in common with the donor car. Twenty-five were built in the first series in 1971 with a shocking $35,000 price tag (4 times the price of a Lincoln Mk3), of which only 14 remain today. Experts believe just two were built, with this example thought to be the only one constructed by Padane. Carrozzeria Pardane mainly specialised in busses and campers but in addition to the Blackhawk also built the Maserati Mistral, Indy and Bora. No other car is quite so exclusive as this one. Unfortunately the Stutz Company haemorrhaged money every day of its existence. In an effort to safe money Stutz from 1972 decided to build their cars on the base of GM cars, loosing much of its beautiful alluring lines. The first Blackhawk was sold to no one less than Elvis Presley himself. Other celebrities such Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball owned one. The Shah of Iran even owned 12! The bodywork is nice and straight with correct body panel fittings. All chrome details and decorative elements are as good as new. Under the hood resides a Pontiac 400-CI V-8 with a GM Turbo-Hydramatic transmission. The car only has 33,863 miles on the clock and is in exemplary condition. This Stutz is absolutely unique, especially in this superb condition!

Gallery Aaldering is a family owned business since 1975. Founder Nico Aaldering and his son Nick are responsible for operational and executive management. The company has been in Brummen since 1987 and started on the location where we currently have our second workshop and detailing shop.
Moving to Brummen
Nico started very small, with only three employees. People who still work for the company today. The company grew rapidly and established a name for itself based on quality. In the nineties it was time for expansions after many years of selling Alfa Romeo, then Italian cars later on followed by British cars as well. At the end of 2000 Gallery Aaldering moved to the current premises at the Arnhemsestraat in Brummen. This showroom was build according to Nico's idea and sketches and has a Neoclassical style to match the classic cars inside.
During this time Nick entered the company after finishing his studies and working for different automotive companies. Gallery Aaldering expanded and gained momentum with the decades of experience offered by Nico and the bright new ideas and progressive vision offered by Nick. The collection became more diverse with an important move upwards to higher segments. Gallery Aaldering has grown to become one of the largest classic car dealers in Europe. There are about 350 classic cars on display on four floors with a Grand Café and special rooms for business meetings.
As a family owned business Gallery Aaldering is proud of its history and traditions, but the future is just as important. At the heart of this all is the passion for classic automobiles. For that reason we participate in the most impressive classic car rally in the world, the Mille Miglia.
A deeply rooted love for cars. You will find this in both our genes and the identity of this family owned business.
