The 2022 Radnor Hunt Concours “Best of Show” was awarded to a 1925 Locomobile Model 48.9 Derham Convertible owned by Robert Jepson.
The featured Concours d’Elegance automile classes for 2023 include:
- Lincoln Continental Pre and Post War (1939 – 1948)
- Continental Mark II (1956-1957)
- Continental Mark III – V (1969-1979

This year, all the way from Switzerland, is this incredible 1953 Delahaye 135 MS CL Spéciale Faget-Varnet. This one-off blue coupe will be on the show field as one of the featured vintage vehicles.
Another featured vintage marque on the main field will be a car collection of HRGs. The collection includes a rare 1950 HRG 1500, a 1956 HRG Twin Cam, and a 1947 HRG 1500 Aerodynamic.
