Concours d'Elegance of America | American Classic Elegance

A Shunpiker's Journal
July 12, 2021 9:00 AM


The Concours d'Elegance of American is a fine place to enjoy rare beauty. Many vehicles on display that upcoming weekend are a symbol of American automotive elegance.

In the slideshow below includes what Phillippe Barraud, wealthy paper mill heir of Lausanne, Switzerland decided in 1937 to build -- the most ostentatious automobile he could imagine. Wanting to best the Delahaye roadsters he had encountered in Paris, he chose the imposing Cadillac V-16 chassis with a 154" wheelbase as his starting point. His desire to oversee the construction of the car led him to local craftsman Willy Hartmann to construct his dream. The result is a 22 foot, two-passenger roadster, unequaled in scale and style.

Nothing says Americana like 1960s automotive styling! For some, the rocket-ship look was just silly, and the compacts were an appealing new alternative. For others, the magic of the American car still rested in V8 power, longer and lower styling, and modern luxury. A new decade had arrived, and the era of “one size fits all” was gone forever.
