Chassis #: BX 279B
Buick Roadmaster Prototype (BX 279B)
This car appears to be a standard 1955 Buick Roadmaster. But in fact, it is a one-off prototype built for one of General Motors' Motorama shows. These extravaganzas were marketing masterstrokes, high profile traveling road shows designed to showcase GM's innovative design and engineering. These prototypes allowed the public to see new models before they actually went into production. They were virtually hand-built and hugely expensive to fabricate.
