The 63rd Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is months away but the field of cars for this elite competition, held at Pebble Beach Resorts, is already beginning to take shape — from coach built Lincolns exhibiting the continental flair of Edsel Ford to the classic confections of the Parisian firm Vanvooren to the charging mounts from Ferruccio Lamborghini that have long defined the term “supercar.”
Entry applications were due in January and are now being reviewed and vetted. The Concours Selection Committee meets at the end of March to determine which cars will receive a coveted invitation to the August 18 competition set on the 18th fairway at Pebble Beach Golf Links. Most applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision by mid-April.
Late entry applications can still be submitted, but space in many classes is already limited. To request an application, please send an inquiry offering some basic information about your car to firstname.lastname@example.org. The 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will feature:
Lincoln: After Ford purchased Lincoln in 1922, Edsel Ford took a marque well known for mechanical excellence and defined it with superior styling and elegant custom coachwork. Long one of America’s elite luxury cars, Lincoln served as the official conveyance for presidents from Franklin D. Roosevelt to John F. Kennedy to George W. Bush. The show field will focus on one-off custom-bodied Lincolns. The show will also feature Simplex, Vanvooren, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911, BMW 507 and there will also be some surprises on the show field.
