    One of General Motors most radical looking dream cars of the 1950s was the Buick Wildcat II. First shown in 1954, the Wildcat II featured portholes atop the hood, freestanding headlights, chromed and louvered front fender liners, plus twin spotlights that flanked the Panoramic windshield. Rear fenderlines and taillights were similar to those used on the 1954 Skylark production model. Smallest Buick built, only 48-inches tall, and rolled on a 100-inch wheelbase.
