For Sale: 1937 LaSalle Coupe in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

While the LaSalle was Cadillac's junior, the fact that it only lasted a few years makes this 1937 LaSalle Coupe a sought-after pre-war classic. And when this unique vehicle is complete from its V8 power to jump seat interior, you know you're looking at something special for a quite affordable price.

This LaSalle makes a lasting impression with a long, pointed hood and rounded trunk that represents this pre-war era nicely. Aerodynamics were making the cars sleeker every year, so the curvaceous fenders and torpedo headlights are as functional as they are handsome. The tall, narrow grille had become a LaSalle trademark that created a very unique appearance. The maroon paint has a nice look with a hint of age that gives this coupe some added maturity. It's a very complete car over eight decades later, and so you'll be impressed by the details, like the bright chrome bummers with LaSalle logo, full-length trim, and correct wheel covers with iconic whitewalls.

The interior feels like a true survivor. Lovers of originality will marvel at the look of the gauges or the broadcloth on the seats. And those who want something fresher can see the value price for room in the budget to add any improvements. But we especially like the factory style inside, because if someone had put in a custom interior decades ago, we would have probably lost some interesting details, like the two fold-up jump seats in the rear.

Under the hood is a very correct presentation of the V8. The 322 cubic-inch displacement is even correct for a LaSalle. It's smooth, torquey, and highly related to the Cadillac's hardy V8 (the ones that would power tanks in the upcoming war.) The engine looks just as correct as the rest of the car with its large oil bath air cleaner and dressed in more recent application of green engine enamel. It's backed by a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission that is always a fun way to connect to a bygone era. The suspension is conventional, with a "knee-action" independent front end. It provides a classic feeling that's also Cadillac-level plush. So this remains a distinct and solid cruiser.

The sale comes complete with a shop manual and other paperwork. This is the rare classic coupe that looks distinct and runs smooth. So if you want to be the center of attention for a surprisingly affordable price, hurry up and call today!
