A gorgeous 50’s concept from General Motors, designed by Ned Nickles and body built by famous Italian brand Pininfarina.
In someway it’s the seed of the final 1959 Buick. Two cars were built with a few differences you can see on the pics. Lovely wing-like rear fins, nice sculptured metal side, and the rounded hood that draws a shoulder with the lights below… interesting and personal design.
I’ve met this car on this site http://www.oldcarsweekly.com that I would like to recommend everybody. And, the photos come from GM Media Archive.

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.

That’s a nice american 40’s car, but probably it’s well known due to the 1988 film Rain Man (starring Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman).
Enjoy the pics, and look the Roadmaster iconic three our four vents on the front fender behind the front wheels, as on the 1955 Roadmaster. Nowadays you can find them for example on Maseratis as Gran Turismo, Ghibli, Quattroporte and the nice concept Alfieri.
