2016 Pebble Beach Brass Cars (Closed)

Monterey and the Pebble Beach Concours had much to offer enthusiasts this year, and there was a large assortment of early cars. In fact, Pebble Beach split the class into "Open" and "Closed" cars - you rarely see closed cars from this era. The following are some of the cars from the "Closed" class. Pat Craig's 1915 Piece-Arrow (with a two decade old restoration) won the class.

1912 Packard Model 30 Four Brougham. Owned by the Matthews Family, this car is one of very few remaining Model 30's with closed coachwork.  I had the pleasure of seeing this car earlier in the year at the Pierce-Arrow Society event in Northern California.  [Photographed by the Author]
1911 Oldsmobile Limited Series 27 Clark Carriage Limousine. Owned by The Nethercutt Collection, this car was previously owned by D. Cameron Peck and Otis Cahandler.  [Photographed by the Author]

1913 ALCO Model Six Berline Limousine. Owned by Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, this car is one of few surviving ALCO's and even fewer Model Six's.  [Photographed by the Author]

1912 Delaunay-Belleville La Carrosserie Industrielle Omnibus. Owned by the Mullin Museum, this car was built to carry the Russian Czar's guests between palaces.  [Photographed by the Author]
