More from the 2013 St. John’s Concours: cars 1893 to 1942

Continuing our extensive coverage of the Concours d’Elegance of America at St. John’s this past weekend, here’s a giant photo gallery featuring the 1893 to 1942 vehicles. 

 

With so many great cars to feature, we had to sort and organize them some way or other. Devotees of the obvious, we took the prewar/postwar route. Here in the 1942-and-earlier group you will find some magnificent vehicles, including the Best of Show winners this year in both the American and Foreign categories.

+   Founders Trophy for Best in Show among the American cars was the stunning 1931 Duesenberg J Derham Tourster displayed by Margie and Joseph Cassini III of Bernardsville, NJ. It’s hard to imagine a more sporting Duesenberg with a rear seat.

+  In the Foreign category, the Best of Show honors went to the 1934 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 of Roger Willbanks of West Orange, NJ. With its unique boattail bodywork, this Alfa has an almost ethereal presence.

+  Built very early in 1942 before auto production was suspended, the Lincoln Continental Cabriolet presented by Lincoln partisan David W. Johnson is the newest car in this group. Eye-popping features on this rare and fabulous Continental (also pictured above) include gold-finished dash trim.

+   Billed as an 1893 model, the Shamrock runabout is the oldest here, and it would be a candidate for true automotive pioneer—except that its builders, the Mimna brothers of tiny Wardsville, Ontario, didn’t complete it until 1904. Still, the Shamrock is a fascinating and significant auto, and it resides today in the Canadian Transportation Museum in Kingsville, Ontario.
