    I seem to recall the Buick Blackhawk being sold at a BJ auction a while back.

    '63 BlackHawk

    OK you forgetful inquisitive minds, here you go! This is the Forum Post link:

    Forget the nice looking except the Grille, off-category Buick, here's the real deal!

    Last post was just June 16, 2011.

    It's just a one-off Show Car, but they may have gotten feedback from the crowds enough to decide to include the Black or White Vinyl Half Roof on the '64 GT as an option.

    The Buick Y-job was the first concept car. Has hugely instrumental in setting GM's styling direction for years to come.

    The Y Job was a concept car built by Harley Earl. I saw the Blackhawk concept car in person at the Autorama in Sacramento several years ago. It was just as gorgeous in person as it is in pictures. Too bad they didn't build it.

    That car was based on the y-job if I remember right. There was a story in Hot Rod when it was built. 455 Buick V-8 with furl injection.

    But after 30+ years involved with Studebakers--
    this is the first time I have EVER heard of one with such a name.
    Am I the only one? What'd it look like? What year was it built?


    TELL ME MORE!!!!!!

    (those little trading cards in bubble gum back in the '80s don't count)

    Bad guy in a Batman movie, yada yada...actually, I can see Lamont Cranston in this one. It's so tasteful, it seems like only the angle of the windshield is not something a good early Fifties customizer would have done. The roofline alone would make a Bugatti pull over and let you by.

    I don't think NHTSA bumpers are going to do a thing for it, though.
