While the LaSalle was Cadillac's junior, the fact that it only
lasted a few years makes a sedan like this 1937 Model 50 a
sought-after pre-war classic. And when this unique vehicle is so
complete and so vintage, you know you're looking at something
This LaSalle makes a lasting impression with a long, pointed hood
and rounded trunk that epitomizes the era. Aerodynamics were making
the cars sleeker every year, so the raked windshield and curvaceous
fenders are as functional as they are handsome. The same goes for
the bullet-shaped headlights. Plus, the tall, narrow grille leading
the way had become a LaSalle hallmark. So yes, this really caarries
the best of an authentic vintage presentation, right down to the
correct hubcaps and iconic whitewalls. Even the paint is a lacquer
finish, and it has aged in correctly. So while the deep and glossy
green is an upgrade over the factory beige, there are going to be
plenty of people who will just assume they are looking at a nearly
85-year-old factory application.
Luxury in a '30s car was all about going broad - broad doors, broad
space, and broadcloth. The interior looks and feels like it was
updated during the car's lifetime, and main areas like the
headliner and carpeting look new, but the nothing about it feels
out of place for the 1930s. The rear seat has adult level room, and
everyone loves the look of suicide doors. Up front, the dash has an
art deco style and a very symmetrical look. The large steering
wheel with LaSalle center cap and tall floor shifter are all there
to make sure this feels like a rolling time capsule.
The only engine available in your LaSalle was a slightly downsized
version of the Cadillac L-head V8. But smaller doesn't mean small,
and so this 322 cubic-inch motor was still the envy of big-time
movers. This one keeps with this car's full authentic presentation,
right down to the generator. These were hardy motors that would go
on to power WWII tanks, and so this robust powerhouse remains a
terrific runner today. It's backed by a three-speed manual
transmission that has a smooth action so that you can get the most
out of the V8 without taking away from the classic luxury driving
This LaSalle sedan is a rare treat with an exceptionally authentic
style. So if you want to be the center of attention, hurry up and
1937 Cadillac Lasalle
