A special display of DuPont motor cars was one of the highlights of the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Very few of these prewar grand automobiles were built, and only a handful still exist, so to see 11 of these cars on the Pebble Beach show field was extraordinary. Here are a few examples of this rare car, each with its own unique hood ornament.
A group of historically significant 1949 – 1951 custom Mercury’s, including iconic lead sleds made famous in pop culture movies and popular car magazines of the day, were a very special class at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours.
