1936 LaSalle Five-Passenger Sedan

1936 LaSalle Five-Passenger Sedan
24,200.00 USD
1936 LaSalle Five-Passenger Sedan RM Auctions Automobiles of Arizona Collector Car Auction Phoenix, Arizona AUCTION RESULTS: Lot 110 - Sold at a price of $24,200 105bhp, 248 cu. in. inline eight-cylinder engine, three-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with A-arms and coil springs, semi-floating rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, rear stabilizer bar, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 120" René Robert Cavelier was a restless spirit who sailed for Canada in 1666, arriving a full 17 years before Antoine de La Mothe Cadillac. Later given the title de La Salle, this name was appropriated for Cadillac's companion brand, which was introduced for 1927 and remained in production until 1940. An all-new design, the LaSalle was created by Harley Earl, and today it remains the very first production automobile designed from the outset by a car stylist. The LaSalle was tremendously popular at introduction, but by 1932, sales had plummeted to 3,386 from over 22,961 just three years earlier. In these dark days, the Cadillac division was losing money, so few funds were available for new car development. Although there were even rumors of discontinuing LaSalle, it still outsold Cadillac. In the end, a reprieve was granted, thanks to yet another styling triumph by Harley Earl, as well as a host of mechanical advancements introduced on the 1934 models, including a new chassis, a new eight-cylinder engine, hydraulic brakes, and a modern, independent front suspension. Stylistically, the 1936 Series 50 LaSalle models, were virtually unchanged in overall design from 1934, and sported a new, upright "Convex-Vee" grille, as well as revised hood ports, and detail changes that resulted in quieter operation. In addition, the LaSalle was perhaps the most streamlined American production car of its time, and its strong public acceptance helped strengthen Cadillac as the economy continued to struggle under the lingering effects of the Great Depression. The 1936 LaSalle Series 50 Five-Passenger Sedan presented here is an early production example, with approximately 75,000 actual miles reported by the current owner from new. It is appropriately finished with a formal black exterior, and complemented by very good brightwork, as well as dual amber fog lights, and dual chrome-plated rearview mirrors. It rides on a set of black painted steel wheels with chrome-plated hubcaps and trim rings, surrounded by period-style wide whitewall tires.

1937 LaSalle Series 37-50 Sport Coupe

1937 LaSalle Series 37-50 Sport Coupe
52,800.00 USD
Offered For Sale at the: RM Auction - Vintage Motor Cars at Meadow Brook Hall August 6, 2005, Auburn Hills, Michigan RM Auctions One Classic Car Drive Blenheim, Ontario N0P 1A0 Canada Phone: 519-352-4575 Website: www.rmauctions.com 1937 LaSalle Series 37-50 Sport Coupe LOT: 046 Chassis No. 2B24856 Sold at a price of $52,800 105hp 248 cu. in. inline eight-cylinder engine, three-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, live axle rear suspension with leaf springs and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 120" Introduced in 1929 to broaden Cadillac’s market range, LaSalle faced new challenges in 1935 from the Packard 120 and Lincoln Zephyr. Cadillac had been the first to introduce a medium-priced automobile as under Alfred P. Sloan’s leadership General Motors filled every niche it could find. Its strategy obviously commended itself to its competitors that were, like Cadillac, struggling in the Great Depression’s doldrums and these competitors seriously threatened LaSalle’s prospects. LaSalle’s stature was built on a base of Cadillac engineering and quality assembly using the best components available from outside suppliers. LaSalle actively promoted the famous and prestigious names of its vendors – Borg & Beck, Spicer, Brown-Lipe, Bendix, A.O. Smith and Stromberg featured prominently in its literature. The inline eight, the only straight eight ever to power a Cadillac product, bore unmistakable similarities with Oldsmobile’s contemporary engine and LaSalle went out of its way to maintain that it was a LaSalle engine assembled to Cadillac standards in the Cadillac factory. If anything distinguished LaSalle it was Harley Earl’sstyling that had broken new ground when the marque was launched in 1929 and continued to set it apart. Cadillac had considered dropping the marque in 1934, but Earl responded with some of the most attractive and modern designs ever proposed for a General Motors product. His brilliant styling carried the day. While the 1935 LaSalles lost the biplane bumpers that were among the most evocative expressions of thirties’ Art Deco design, the single piece 1935 bumpers more than made up in practicality what they lacked in finesse. LaSalle continued with dramatic pontoon fenders and chevron trim integrated into the front fenders, augmented by the new for 1935 vee windshields that made LaSalle’s Art Deco statement. Total LaSalle production for 1935 was 8,653 cars. There are no individual model or bodystyle production figures available, but the Sport Coupe was only a small fraction of the total and it is today surpassingly rare and distinctive. The example offered here has a fresh frame-off restoration completed in 2004 with only 100 shakedown and testing miles since it was finished. Equipped with its original matching numbers engine it also has the original radio, clock, jack, rear-mounted spare tire has jump seats for occasional passengers behind the primary passenger seats. Meticulously restored, its rich and deep paintwork is complemented by striking silver interior upholstery and trim, a stunning look that would please even “Mister Earl” if he were here today to see it. Many feel that 1935 was the pinnacle of Art Deco design in Detroit and it does not get any better than this brilliantly and freshly restored 1935 LaSalle Sport Coupe.

LaSalle History

In 1926, Alfred P. Sloan, Jr., president of General Motors, sought a lower-priced companion to the Cadillac to fill out GM's producr line. He lured a custom car designer named Harley Earl to Detroit for the project and the result was the 1927 LaSalle, the first mass-production car to be consciously "styled".

The LaSalle marque was used by General Motors from 1927 until 1940.

1930 - LaSalle is one of the first companies to include wiring for radios.

In 1930 LaSalle increased its wheelbase to 134 inches and were offered with six fleetwood bodies as well as bare chassis for custom coachbuilders. Prices were also increased.
