Rare US Classic Car

This is 1948 Cadillac Series 62 Saoutchik
 "3-position drophead", which is also drop-dead gorgeous...

"Some of the most flamboyant, and expensive coachwork 
ever to come out of France was created, or caused to be
, by expatriate russian cabinet maker Jacques Saoutchik.
 In 1948, noted New York city furrier
 Louis Ritter commissioned Saoutchik to execute 
a special convertible on a Cadillac chassis. The car was
 completed in time to be displayed
at the Paris salon of 1949."

1969 Chrysler 70X concept with unusual doors:

1955 Buick WildCat III sports huge bumper "bombs":

1956 Oldsmobile Golden Rocket had a spokeless 
steering wheel! -

1955 Cadillac La Salle II Hardtop Sedan:

This is somewhat less-known concept, 
but perhaps one of the most flamboyant from Ford:

Aerodynamic and bold 1955 Lincoln Indianapolis 
(intended for the 1955 Turin Motor Show):

Possibly the world's rarest automobile - 
only one car exists out of only two produced 
as a Motorama “Dream Car”: a 1954 
Oldsmobile Rocket F88 -

1959 Cadillac Cyclone "Motorama" dream car:
