Buick has the proudest design heritage of all the GM cars. The 1939 Y Job was the first concept car ever built and was a precursor of Buick advanced design for almost 20 years. For the 1954 Motorama, Buick built the Wildcat II which is considered by collectors to be the outstanding concept car of the decade, the second golden age of American automotive design.
The WoW name was set in stone when John Moss, GM's former Manager of Specialty Vehicles, first saw the drawings you see above. "Wow, WOW!!! " he said, and that was that.
Combining outsanding design elements from many years, you can easily understand why this is one of the biggest hits of our "Greatest Hits" series. It's a chart buster, as they would say in the recording industry. The stance of a big cat, the muscular haunches about to unleash lightning-fast response, and excitement and the air of refinement that used to define many American automobiles.
Think of the '37 Cord Sportsman and the '66 Toronado, whose main design elements were influenced by the Cord. A modern interpretation of a classic that, after 40 years, is a classic itself - just like the WoW, the Wildcat on Wheels. The grille from the '39 Y Job, the sidesweep from the '53 Skylark, the taillights from the Wildcat II, all modernized and blended into another American classic.
