1938 General Motors Buick Y-Job Concept

The Buick Y-Job is widely acknowledged as the automotive industry's first concept car. 
It introduced features such as concealed headlamps, electrically operated windows, 
flush doors handles and a power operated convertible top that was fully concealed by a steel boot when retracted. 
It looks and functions just like a modern day power convertible top. 
70 years since it's debut, the top mechanism still works today. 
Power was supplied by a Buick 320 cubic inch straight 8.
