 1937 LaSalle Convertible Roadster Project for sale or trade. Chrome done! Tons of new parts to build a wicked ride!

If you are looking for a big project and to build an amazing rare late 30's convertible coupe. please read on.
 
This rare two-seater GM convertible body features both a rumble seat and trunk. (GM's last year for a rumble seat. ) The body and frame is from a 1938 Pontiac cabriolet that uses the same convertible body as LaSalle and Cadillac.  The BAD news: Due to the poor and rusted out condition of the Pontiac fenders and floors. we decided to save the roadster body and build a 1937 LaSalle by using excellent parts from a solid California LaSalle donor car. We started replacing the floors and rockers. as well as the firewall. cowl and rear fender wells. This project still needs a lot of fabrication work. including squaring up the doors. replacing rusty trunk/rumble floorboards. convertible top work. and mechanical fabrication.  This project includes a Helix Mustang II IFS Coil Over Stock 5x4. 75 Power LHD Rack with sway bar and four link rear end suspension kit.

The GOOD news: This project also includes an excellent and complete set of rust and dent free LaSalle body parts (everything you need) including the hood. hood sides. headlight buckets. front and rear fenders. running boards. doors. dash. cowl. firewall. floors and rockers. Best of all we have over $10K in very nice re-chromed trim parts (still wrapped in newspaper from being re-chromed in the 80's) bumpers. bumper guards headlight rims. a perfect grill. hood ornament. hood trim. window trim. running board trim. all inside and outside handles and excursion plates for all doors. trunk and the rumble seat. The chrome is amazing. and would cost a fortune to find and re-plate in today's market.

The package includes the following parts:
Super rare 1937 Original GM roadster body/frame and convertible top mechanism and hardware (Paid $10k for car)1937 LaSalle Donner car body parts. (Paid $12k)$10k in re-chromed trim parts. (still wrapped in newspaper from being re-chromed in the 80's) (New in boxes)  Glide Roadster and Rumble Seat. (Paid $1200) (New in box) Carbon fiber heated seat kit. (New in boxes) Helix universal 60. 5 Front Steer Track Mustang II IFS Coil Over Stock 5x4. 75 Power LHD Rack with Sway bar and four link rear end suspension kit. power window and door kits. new latches. remote control. trunk and rumble poppers $2300. (New in box) Vintage air heater and defroster. $250All original dash components. Knobs. trim. speedometer. clock. gauges. radio control. map light. and lighter. (Gauges restored with new chrome by John Wolf for $1600)1993 Chevy blazer 350 small block engine with AC pump and TBI and rebuilt 700R4 transmission.  
Over $40k invested. Take her home for $25. 00 or trade for a 1927-1950 turnkey restored car. Ideally 1930-34. Love  Pontiac. Nash. DeSoto. Chrysler as well as odd balls and unique orphan cars. Get out your welding torch and build yourself one of twenty 1937 LaSalle Cabriolet Coupes in existence!  

When finished they sell for $100K+.  The car is located in Oakland. CA and sold as is.  The car does not steer or roll.  No title. For more info. please contact John at 650-302-5681.

It's been a long time since your car was advertised. Any chance it's still for sale? A 37 LaSalle fan.
