The reserve price is below the Buy it now price!!!

This is a very rare car. only 125 produced and only a few (I estimate less than 10) left. You will probably never see another one.   I purchased it along with other cars and just never got around to restoring it. I did have  a dual master cylinder installed but other than that it is stock as far as I can tell.   There are 4 registered with the Cadillac LaSalle club.
  It runs well and stops correctly. I have not driven it much. as it had Minnesota antique license plates and I just drove it that way. I do have it insured along with my other collector cars.
 The upholstery looks fine and the interior is also nice. Not comparable with modern cars to drive though!!

  Actual mileage is unknown!

   I am planning on downsizing and will be losing my garages.

   LaSalle was produced from 1927 to 1940 and were produced by Cadillac Corporation as a "Junior Cadillac"  The engine is the same as the 1940 Cadillac except bore is 1/4 inch less and horsepower is 20 HP less. Often during rebuilds LaSalle owners bore out to Cadillac dimensions 346 Cubic inches rather than 322 that LaSalle has. 20 extra horsepower hidden! Cadillac stopped selling the LaSalle  as it was cutting into Cadillac sales.

    The convertibles are very rare and costly but mechanical parts are readily available from many sources as large number of sedans and coupes were produced.

    The upholstery is a caramel color. the pictures do not show it well due to lighting and cell phone camera.   I can email better pictures to anybody really interested.

    Feel free to ask questions.

    If you are old enough you may remember Archie and Edith singing "And gee our LaSalle ran great those were the days" . Essentially a little smaller car of Cadillac quality.   Discontinued because it was actually stealing Cadillac customers.
