This Oldsmobile with an unusual body by Pennsylvania coachbuilder Schutte is scheduled to cross RM Sotheby's auction block in Hershey, PA (October 8-9). It is one of fewer than 10 Schutte-bodied cars known to survive. This 1924 Turtle Deck Speedster was built on a 1924 Oldsmobile chassis and is a remarkable example of the craftsmanship of Schutte body men. The aluminum skin is stretched quite expertly over an ash frame. The seat folds forward, enabling one to examine the structure that resembles a beautifully crafted canoe from the inside. The Olds is fitted for dual rear-mounted spares, and it wears disc wheels mounted on wood artillery wheels, dual spotlights, and an engine-turned dash. Many custom features inside include a cigar holder built into the dash, a windless ashtray with cigarette holder, and a 'fatboy' retractable steering wheel that includes both a matchstick holder and a stop watch.1924 Oldsmobile Model 30-B 'Turtle Deck' Speedster by Schutte originally appeared on Conceptcarz.com on Fri, 25 Sep 2015 16:08:46 EST.
