Mustang designer Gale Halderman named Grand Marshal of Dayton Concours

Concours attendees will be able to meet and chat with the man responsible for the car, Tipp City native Gale Halderman. Halderman has been named “Grand Marshal” for the Concours and will be at the event all day Sunday. It was Halderman’s pencil sketch in 1962 that made the final cut and became the design for the legendary Mustang, which has now sold over 8 million cars among 6 design generations.

Dayton Concours d’Elegance at Carillon Historical Park will begin at 10:30 AM on Sunday, September 15th. Examine and admire 200 of the finest classic and antique automobiles and motorcycles in the country, amidst the beautiful and welcoming setting of the region’s premier outdoor museum. Guests will be treated to food, live music, and historical demonstrations in addition to the chance to see beautiful cars and motorcycles up close and personal.

The event will culminate with an awards ceremony around 3:00 PM. Winners of the “Best in Class” awards will parade to the awards stage, in addition to the R.H. Grant Best in Show, Charles Kettering People’s Choice, Col. Edward Deeds Judge’s Choice, Siler Spirit, Taj Ma Garaj, and Kid’s Choice Awards.
