More from the 2013 St. John’s Concours: cars 1946 to 1996

An impressive selection of postwar vehicles made the scene at last Sunday’s 2013 St..John’s Concours in Plymouth, Michigan. Check them out in the giant photo gallery. 

 

Just a few of the many great cars in this group:

+   From a featured class at St. John’s for 2013, Jet Age Convertibles, the 1959 Dodge Custom Royal Convertible of Naif Makol, Jr. sports a two-tone exterior in black and yellow and a matching interior in lemon yellow. Just gorgeous.

+   In basic black paint, blackwall tires, and mid-level Fleetmaster trim, Dr. Donald Gale’s 1946 Chevy Sport Coupe wasn’t the flashiest job on the lawn, but it was still one of our favorites. Clean, honest design.

+   Kenneth Nagel’s 1960 Chrysler 300F, with its 413 CID long-ram induction setup and dual Carter four-barrels, boasts one of the most fabulous-looking engine compartments to ever come out of the Motor City. Conspicuous fuel consumption.

+   The Chrysler Historical Collection’s 1950 Willys-Overland Jeepster is a familiar sight at Detroit-area car shows over the years, but we never get tired of looking it over. A Brooks Stevens original.

Gallery below.

  1. Went to the show Sunday, never saw better restorations than I saw there. The paint and upholstery on the cars was better than new.

  2. I hope that any Detroit engineers at the show noticed how nice an engine bay could look without a plastic cover over the top.
