Amelia Island Concours : Best in Show Concours de Sport
The 2015 Amelia Island Concours named the 1932 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 owned by David Sydorick as their Best of Show Concours de Sport. Designed by Vittorio Jano as a replacement for the 6C 1750, the racing versions of the 8C 2300 had multiple wins at LeMans, Spa, Targa Florio, and the Mille Miglia. Built from 1931 to 1934, the chassis was fitted with stunning coachwork by Touring, Zagato, Brianza, Castagna, Figoni and others.
Continue for additional information and images about the 8C Alfa. Our detailed report about this year's Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance will follow shortly.
Amelia Island Concours : Best in Show Concours d'Elegance
The judges were presented with over 300 vehicles to select their choice as 'Best in Show.' What they chose was a 1930 Cord L-29 purchased new by Brooks Stevens who had the Speedster body redesigned in the mid-1930s. He extensively restyled the car, adding skirted fenders, a speedster tail and Woodlites. He drove it in races, hill climbs and other sporting events until his death in 1995. Currently, the car is in the care of Ed & Judy Schoenthaler.
In the early 1920s, E.L. Cord used his business and sales talents to gain control of the Auburn and Duesenberg automobile companies. In 1929, he created his namesake, the Cord, as the middle-class volume sales part of his ACD conglomerate.
The L-29 was engineered by racecar builder Harry Miller and one Cornelius Van Ranst. Its power plant began as the 125 horsepower, 289.6 cubic inch, Auburn straight eight, but ended up quite different. The cylinder head was modified for a rear engine mount.
Follow the link for additional photos and information about the L-29 Cord.
