Car & Driver Magazine Recognizes Kaiser Dragon at 2019 Concours d’Elegance of America

Hi Gang…

Great News to Share

The new owner of our 1953 Kaiser Dragon, Sam Haberman, had his car accepted at the Concours d’Elegance of America in Plymouth, Michigan.  This is one of the top concours in the nation, and the Dragon just showed on the field Sunday, July 28th, 2019.

On their review of the field, Car & Driver magazine recognized the Kaiser Dragon as one of their 10 favorite cars of the concours – not an easy achievement given the variety of high class cars at these events. You can check out the photo below for more detail or the link for the “Car and Driver” website below (The Dragon is the fifth car in the photo gallery). Here’s the link:

Bringing the Kaiser and Frazer names to the forefront is what we’ve wanted to do here at Undiscovered Classics and this is a great start in landing one of these cars on the field.

More is afoot at our base of operations for in Tampa, Florida where we are known for rare and unusual cars and getting them recognized across the world. We plan to continue to celebrate the Kaiser Frazer marque – and more – in future years so that more folks young and old will enjoy the cars we do.

From Car & Driver Magazine: 1953 Kaiser Dragon Sedan This flamboyant car has a fittingly flamboyant name. When it was introduced in 1952, the Dragon was Kaiser’s most expensive model, and it was distinguished by exterior accents made from real 14-karat gold, special cloth seats, and the eye-catching “Bambu” vinyl roof you see here. It also came with extravagant period features including an automatic transmission, tinted windows, a rear (!) audio speaker, center armrests, and power steering. Topping it all off is a gold plate on the glovebox that came inscribed with the name of the owner.—Daniel Golson

Summary:

Hope you enjoyed the story, and remember…

The adventure continues here at Undiscovered Classics.

  1. Well deserved recognition! I appreciate your efforts to keep interest in these orphaned, one off, and way under appreciated marques! I’ve learned a bunch from you folks already!

  2. Thanks for keeping our favorite make of car in the forefront. Kaisers and Frazer’s were way ahead of their time in styling.
