Two tone interior with modern gauges added glamour to the fifties cars.
The two-tone blue dream car featured a blue-tinted, brushed aluminum roof and blue-tinted glass.
The 1955 Oldsmobile Delta Concept Car’s fate is not known. It just may be in someone's car collection or museum.
One of the many attractions of the 1955 GM Motorama. It wasn't way-out futuristic as one of those styling staff showoff jobs.

1955 was a Great year for GM and all the other car manufacturers. New engines, new two tone colors, new styling, new excitement. I remember the year well and loved going to see the new cars at the dealers with my Dad.
This Olds 88 Concept Car was a glimpse into the near future for automotive designs and GM led the industry![Reply to this comment]

The year of 1955 was hard to beat for sales of GM cars. If I remember correctly it was not until 1965 that GM beat 1955 in sheer number of cars sold. Mario, thanks for all this amazing automotive stuff you post here. It is very much appreciated. Cheers.[Reply to this comment]

Yes, correct George, and Thank you. GM's best year for car sales was in 1965. Chevrolet alone sold 1.7 mil cars in 1965 beating the previous best in 1955 of 1.6 mil. Those were the days when GM was King and I am fortunate to have seen it all happen. Cheers![Reply to this comment]
