Details

This striking 1940 LaSalle is a rare, rust-free convertible ready for its new adventure. Stored for many years in a museum before making its way to the current owner, this LaSalle started right up after a gas tank flush, brake bleed, and a new battery. The dramatic black exterior and burgundy interior complement the flashy chrome detailing. According to the consignor, the vehicle appears as it did in 1940 and can easily reach modern highway speeds. A rare find in the classic car world, this LaSallle convertible is a must-have for any collector.
