1938 Buick Y-Job
1938 Buick Concept Car. Also known as the Fireball, the Y-Job was the industry’s first Concept Car. It was built upon a standard Buick chassis, but had a long, low, streamlined custom body, hand-built by Harley Earl’s craftsmen. The Y-Job featured numerous innovations, including hidden headlamps, power windows and convertible roof, and air-cooled, airplane-type brakes. Not content merely to exhibit it, Earl actually used the Y-Job as his personal car for years.
