Misselwood Concours d’Elegance 13th Annual at Endicott College July 23, 2023
On Boston’s Upper North Shore, seasoned car professionals and students from Endicott College are gearing up for one of the most anticipated and spectacular car events on the East Coast.
Sometimes referred to as the Pebble Beach of the East Coast, the Misselwood Concours d’Elegance event will take place on July 23rd, 2023, at Endicott College’s Misselwood Estate to display some of the rarest vehicles in the world.
The Concours (car show) will take place on the oceanfront lawns of the Misselwood Estate and will feature a full weekend of entertainment, including cars, and an award ceremony for the best vehicle in each car class. Additionally, the Sunday Concours event will include live music, gourmet foods, art and fashion shows, and hundreds of rare and vintage automobiles.
The three-day weekend starts with a Kick-Off Reception Party on Friday, July 21st, and ends with the Misselwood Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, July 23rd, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Other events that fill the weekend will be a Cars & Coffee (car show) on Saturday, July 22nd, 2023, a Tour d’Elegance & Road Rally on Saturday, July 22nd, and a 13th Anniversary Dinner for VIP guests and concours car owners on Saturday, July 22nd.
The Sunday Concours will be a “competition of elegance” car show meaning each car will be graded and judged by a select group of car historians. The judges will tally the votes and present awards and trophies to the car owners with the most luster in each class.
“Car owners and spectators alike are dazzled by the spectacular oceanfront setting, sloping lawns, and warm, inviting atmosphere. Serving as a scholarship fundraiser for Endicott College, the show benefits current and future students by providing them with much-needed financial support. The show takes place on the third full weekend in July each year. In 2023, we will be featuring BFeaturing Bugatti, Cars of the Colorado Grand, Japanese Classics, and the Porsche 356.”
This year’s main car classes include antique cars from the Roaring 20’s Brass & Nickel era and Pre-war Classics. Classes on the sports side will include Vintage Sport GTs, Race Cars, and Exotic Supercars. Other classes include American Muscle Cars and Classic older Motorcycles.
The featured class this year, which will also be judged, includes historically significant examples from Bugatti, Porsche 356, Japanese Classic, and Cars of the Colorado Grand (classic pre-1961 road racer).
Last year, awards went to a 1956 Continental Mark II owned by Tom & Kathy Wholley, a 1917 Locomobile Model 48 Dual Cowl Sportif owned by Dick Shappy, and a 1965 Lola T70 race car owned by Nick Grewal Sanbornton, N.H
