    Influenced by past Buick concepts, including the 1939 Y-Job, the LaCrosse was a luxury four-door hardtop cruiser that carried oversized cargo when panels opened to reveal its pickup-type bed. Classic Buick design cues on the LaCrosse were ventiports (portholes) atop the front fenders, sweepspear side profile, and vertical-bar grille. The large one-piece hood opened to the side, giving easy access to the 265 hp, 4.2-liter aluminum block V-8.
