December, 2016 § Leave a comment

The Buick Y-Job was the auto industry’s first concept car, produced by Buick in 1938. This nice two seater concept was designed by Harley J. Earl with  the car had power-operated hidden headlamps, a “gunsight” hood ornament, wraparound bumpers and the vertical waterfall grille design still used by Buick today.

The “Y” designation was selected by Earl because it was used extensively in the aviation industry denoting the most advanced prototypes.
