This 1939 Cadillac LaSalle is a terrific mix of true classic and street machine. After all, beneath the swoopy coupe lines are upgrades a custom luxury interior and serious small block power. So there's a distinction here that goes well-beyond the LaSalle name.
We love LaSalles just because we get to tell the history about how they spent a few years tucked under Cadillac's wing. So that makes this one distinct even before you look at the details. The imposing grille, torpedo-like headlights, integrated spare tire carriers, and outstretched tail lights give this an imposing style. And while the black paint gives this some attitude, it also has a glossy finish that loves to highlight the flowing line of the big fenders and coupe profile. And while this was built to be a driver, the body lines have a straight look of quality. The classic elements are complete, including the hood ornament, ribbed chrome bumpers, and full-length trim. But we bet what you really like is how this one gives some nice hints at its upgraded nature with the large dual exhaust tips and the wide look on the 15-inch wire wheels.
The interior had a very cool style. The front seats are wide split buckets with fold-down armrests and finished in a supple leather. They even individually power adjust. In the rear are two jump seats that can carry extra passengers, but really, are just finished nicely to look quite cool. Plus, the gray on the door panels and carpeting all harmonize to give you a smart-looking package that lives up to Cadillac luxury. An upgraded classic like this means desirable modern features like an AM/FM/XM stereo with USB and Bluetooth. There are even provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) The Lecarra sports steering wheel is done in a coordinating gray, and it's mounted on a tilt column to give you a clear view to the classic-style VDO gauge package and large AutoMeter tach.
The engine bay has a terrific shining style where the polished aluminum on the firewall and inner walls really amplify the gleam coming off the motor. And you'll love this for more than just its show-ready style. This coupe has been upgraded to a 350 cubic-inch V8 that has been built with go-fast goodies like an Edelbrock AVS 2 four-barrel carburetor, an upgrade intake, an Accel 300+ racing ignition, and shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust. It's also supported by the right pieces, like a serpentine belt system, steel braided lines, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit that can handle the added power, and this sends it to a Ford 9-inch rear. You also have power steering, power brakes, and front discs to make this quite a solid all-around cruiser.
Classic coupe style, LaSalle distinction, a luxury interior, and a proper V8 power all come together in this very cool package. So if you want a classic built to fully enjoy, call today!
