    Debuting in 1955, the Buick Wildcat III was exhibited at the Chicago Auto Show in January, 1956. It was one of the earliest four-passenger fiberglass concept cars and housed an extremely powerful V-8 engine with 280 horses and a four-barrel carburetor. This was the third version of Buick's Wildcat in as many years. Hood sloped forward; parking, directional lights were housed in bumper bombs, and air intakes helped cool brakes.
