Cars must be pre-registered by Tuesday, May 14 in order to show at the event. Registration is now closed. We are looking forward to seeing a wide variety of cars and trucks from throughout the decades!

Experience Amelia Earhart's 1937 Cord 812 Phaeton Convertible

The Concours at Clark Car Show proudly welcomes American aviator Amelia Earhart's 1937 Cord 812 Phaeton Convertible to the event.

According to the Car and Driver article, Amelia Earhart's Cord Returns to Its Former Glory after Being Lost for Decades by Brendan McAleer, "With its restoration complete, Earhart's Cord made its initial public showing at the 2021 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, where Concours judges placed it second in the Class C, American Classic category. The Cord's provenance even earned it a place in the National Historic Vehicle Register." In addition, it appeared at Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in Italy and most recently, at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. in 2023.
