Homebrew 1913 Stutz “Replica”

Replica implies a certain amount of accuracy in reproduction; so perhaps we’ll consider this more of a tribute. Either way, someone took a 1964 Ford pickup and made something that looks somewhat like a 1910s-era racer.

Per the seller, this was built by a professional welder, used a 1964 Ford pick up frame and features a Ford 223 inline six running through a three-speed manual transmission. Supposedly, it “runs and drives good.” (SIC)  Mileage is listed as 1M, but we hope that’s a placeholder for “unknown.”

Again, things are generally in the right places to replicate the Stutz, but nothing’s quite right. The headlamps, for example, are tiny compared to period-correct units.

Barrel-style fuel tank is nice and it’s good to see a spare present.

Interior is about as spartan as you’d expect, but the seat looks modern and somewhat supportive.

Here’s the classic Ford truck I6. Note that wiring isn’t exactly pretty.
