New Classic Car Museum Opens In Former Stutz Motor Car Company Building Downtown
SomeraRoad and Turner Woodard collaborate on the Stutz Car Museum, showcasing rare Stutz branded cars and Indianapolis history
Located in the iconic Stutz building off of 10th Street, the newly opened Stutz Car Museum showcases nine classic cars on loan from Turner Woodard’s personal collection, most designed and manufactured in the Stutz factory building a century ago. Created to be an authentic community destination, the 10,000 square-foot museum will be free and open to the public on Thursdays and Fridays from 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
“The Stutz building marks a unique time in automotive history, a time when Indianapolis was considered a carmaker’s city thanks to Harry C. Stutz,” said Ian Ross, Founder and Principal, SomeraRoad. “The cars are true works of art, worthy of preservation, and we’re proud to play a role in keeping that history alive.”
“I’m pleased the new owners of the Stutz Factory see the value of its historic image and brand and that they’re continuing Indiana’s rich automobile heritage with the Stutz Car Museum,” said Turner Woodard. “I’m honored to put these nostalgic automobiles on loan in such a creative public space. I’m certain that the allure of these beautiful cars will catch on.”
