1939 La Salle Series 50.
This particular La Salle has been the subject of a meticulous 3 year nut and bolt, body off restoration. Photo documentation of the restoration and receipts come with this car.
Originally sold in Tulsa, Oklahoma and registered in Checotah, Oklahoma to W. A. Young in 1939. In 1959 Mr. Young sold it to D.C. Cunningham of Checotah, Oklahoma, where it remained until purchased by the third owner, in Greenville, Texas. It was purchased in the mid 1970s by the current owner who also lives in Durant, Oklahoma. Ownership history is documented with copies of original Oklahoma registrations.
