Model History

The LaSalle was an automobile product of General Motors Corporation and sold as a companion marque of Cadillac from 1927 to 1940. For 1937 Cadillac made the LaSalle to stand out. giving it the 322 cu in (5. 3 L) Monobloc V8 of the Series 60. nice new styling. a lower price range and a heavy promotion campaign emphasizing that the car was completely Cadillac built. Model year sales of 32. 00 LaSalles was a terrific leap forward for the marque.

Interior & Equipment

Black with grey cloth trim and twin side-mounts. original clocks and dials. original spoke steering wheel in excellent order. rear opening quarter lights. excellent head lining. fully functional sliding factory fit sunroof.

Exterior

She has never been fully restored and has never had and welding underneath. Various refurbishments have been carried out over the last 10 years to keep her in this stunning condition. The paintwork is almost flawless and panel fit exceptional. Much of the brightwork is original with only minor re-plating of chrome on some parts.

Wheels. Tyres & Brakes

Original refurbished steel wheels with re-chromed hub caps sitting on almost new white wall tyres all round.

Engine & Transmission

Original 320 cubic inch flat head V8 with 3 speed floor change manual gearbox. The engine has been fully rebuilt and many of the ancillaries replaced such as rebuilt steering box. new suspension units to the front and refurbished rear leaf springs. new brakes. wheel bearings. stainless steel exhaust. she is fitted with the original 6 volt positive earth electrics but has a unique 12 volt starter system which works perfectly.

Summary

1937 CADILLAC LA SALLE 37/50

Registration number (original Reg number from new) DXP 556

Known history in UK from new.

Right hand drive (sold new in the UK by Lendrum & Hartman. London).

Very few RHD examples were produced and even fewer survived.

The car was sold new to Dr. A. Jefferson Bernhardt. by UK Cadillac Dealers Lendrum & Hartman. Dr Bernhardt. we believe was a |Harley Street Surgeon. He kept the car in virtually daily use until the late 1960's;

There are several large A4 files containing the full history: documents included such as Current V5 and MOT. many previous old MOT certificates. many invoices for service and repairs over the years. including some handwritten history from Lendrum and Hartman dating back to the 1940's and beyond.

Also present is the shipping document showing the shipping of Right hand drive car 19-02-1937. The printouts of full DVLA keeper history. also numerous letters of correspondence accumulated over the years. All of which confirm the history and status of this very rare La Salle here in the UK.

The car is also known to the USA La Salle register and the UK pre-50's American Auto Club.

This is a very reliable and useable car having covered nominal mileage since engine rebuild etc. and we feel sure it will give as much pleasure to the next owner. whilst also representing a fabulous investment for the future.
