As I understand it, concept cars are built in very small numbers - as in, a handful maybe - they are hand built and so even a major manufacturer can’t justify the expense of building very many. As a result, they’re mainly utilized internally or shown at the major international auto shows only, at least until they’ve outlived their usefulness- at which point, most are sadly sent to the crusher.

More than this, historically, concepts by US automakers are intended for a multitude of things.
Show cars are frequently made for public display to gauge the public's reaction to
styling, feature, technological, and other aspects.
If functional, they're often made as testbeds for technology, performance, new implementations
of drivetrain, and much more. Strong public reaction to styling often causes the manufacturers
to use all or portions of styling in future production vehicles.
This is evident in the Chronos I posted, with the influence easily seen in the current 300.

Within recent decades, the creators of these have realized that there are some good reasons
to preserve them, and they often are donated to museums or similar institutions, while some
manufacturers have created their own collections for the purpose of public display.
Functional concepts frequently are displayed in shows in many places,
the Chronos again being one such example.

These "Concept Cars" are one off cars. Not a handful. They are hand built to showcase new styling and/or new technology. The first of this type of car was the Buick Y-Job built in 1938:

Yes, and no.

The Buick Y-Job is far from being the first of its type.
And the concepts are frequently, but not always, one-off cars.
While the Y-Job is widely considered the first concept made
largely for public display, the fundamental history of concepts
predates 1938 by a long shot.

Concept models can be traced to the beginnings of vehicle-making,
while it was later that they began to be displayed to the public.
They began as in-house experiments, and later made their way
into the public view.

I saw a picture or two of this car a few years before it was displayed
at the 2010 Meadow Brook Concours show, and when I learned that
it was to be displayed, I made sure to grab some photos.

With as crowded and well-attended as that year's event was,
I was fairly surprised to have gotten the shots I did.

I can't even define what it is about this one-off which so tantalizes me,
but I think it's a stunner.
