posted in: Concept | 1

Obviously this Buick could have been a real head turner, because of these jet fighter plane styling cues. Harley Earl the designer of this concept, filled the car with many modern and futuristic elements such as dual gasoline fuel system, convertible top rain sensor, hydraulic jacks on each wheel, etc.
The clay version of LeSabre appeared in 1950 while the real car was presented in 1951. Earl used basic chassis with aluminum supercharged V8 engine [335 HP]. It actually wasn’t a Buick – it was an example project of Harley, who was the head of GM styling, and he used it as his personal car. This concept 1951 Buick LeSabre is said to be worth around one million now.
