Concours Car Class descriptions

Stock

This class is for vehicles restored to original, as-new condition. We have single and multi-make divisions for domestic and import vehicles through 1978 (with Porsche through 1989). If your vehicle fits a single-make division, please enter that division. If you do not see a single-make division that matches your vehicle, choose the multiple-make division in which your vehicle fits.

Preservation

This class is for unrestored vintage vehicles with original powertrains, finishes and interiors. We’re looking for cars and trucks that people could use for research if they wanted to restore something similar. It is open to all makes and models, domestic and import, up to 1966.

Modified

This class is for vehicles with modified engines, suspensions, drivetrains, interiors, and exteriors. We’re looking for examples built with engineering and aesthetics that define the pinnacle of artistic expression. This class is open to all makes and models.
