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.

1933 LaSalle Model 345-C 4 Passenger Coupe

1933 LaSalle Model 345-C 4 Passenger Coupe
47,000.00 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 1933 LaSalle Model 345-C 4 Passenger Coupe LOT: 056 Estimate: $60,000-$70,000 US Chassis No. 2003040 AUCTION RESULTS: Lot was Not Sold at a high bid of $47,000 115hp 353 cu. in. Cadillac 90° V8 L-Head, cast iron block on aluminum crankcase, three-speed synchromesh manual transmission and four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 130" The lovely LaSalle offered here is a very special car. It was the show car debuted at the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair. The car has 34,000 original miles and is complete with desirable features such as the rumble seat and rear mounted spare tire with metal cover. Factory options include directional signals and a color matched chassis. Most recently, a bodyoff, no-expense-spared restoration was completed in 2000 and accordingly, the LaSalle remains in exceptional overall condition. The original paint scheme was retained during the restoration, as it was the only LaSalle built in 1933 to receive India green with “Tokyo ivory” body stripe, spokes and hubs. While the original walnut interior was retained, the car has been completely refurbished and restored to factory correct specifications. The engine underwent a complete rebuild as well as all ancillary parts including the starter, generator, and carburetor. The outstanding quality of the restoration was recognized when the LaSalle offered here won a red ribbon at Cadillac’s 100th Anniversary meet in Detroit. Accompanying this vehicle is an original Chicago World’s Fair 1833 to 1933 blush makeup tin, as well as an original full-page framed advertisement depicting this exact car as presented. The advertisement is titled, “To the man who might have owned a LaSalle… for just a trifle more!” Elegantly written it features several sales pitches such as: “never a place would you hesitate to meet the doorman’s scrutiny through the window of your LaSalle…nor would you expect anything else, once you had comprehended the LaSalle tradition. For LaSalle came out of Cadillac—and bore, from the very date of its introduction, the unimpeachable hallmark of Cadillac prestige…” The last section the advertisement has historically proven true as it leaps from 1933 at today’s potential buyer, stating: “…And thus it is that a new LaSalle is such a wise investment. For, superimposed upon its matchless quality and its incomparably delightful performance, it the very tangible value of a car that really “belongs.” …There’s a lesson here, most obviously, for those who pay the price of LaSalle—but fail of LaSalle’s prestige. And we think there’s a moral equally strong for the man who might have owned a LaSalle for just a trifle more… When the time arrives for you to decide once more on a motor car, we hope you’ll remember and act upon this undeniable fact—you’ll never encounter a place on earth too smart for a LaSalle.” As it could not be better said, we thoroughly encourage all collectors to closely examine this handsome, elegant and very rare example of the LaSalle marque as it is indeed a standout amongst its peers of the period.

Finished in subtle burgundy with black fenders and body accents it is equipped with wire wheels and black wall tires that work together with the colors to subtly compliment the coachwork's refined lines. Restored to high standards, it is equipped with jump seats, dual sidemounts with mirrors, dual windshields, wind wings, a trunk rack, dual tail lights and chrome bumpers. Harley Earl's graceful LaSalle grille is set off by a pair of giant Depress Beam headlights. This is a great automobile with abundant power, a comfortable ride and plenty of room for family and friends.

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.
