Stutz Blackhawk Special, During 1927 Frank Lockhart established a world record of 164.28 miles per hour on the dry lakes of Muroc, CA; in a car powered by a tiny 91½ cubic-inch displacement engine. This established Lockhart as one of the most competent and skilled drivers in automobile racing. Lockhart's success was due largely to his inherent engineering ability and the ability to make changes necessary to make a racing car go faster.

The specially built Stutz "Blackhawk Special" in which Lockhart was to make the assault on the world speed record was a product largely of his own creation and was considered a masterpiece of engineering.
