Used 1940 LaSalle Convertible Sedan for sale in Morgantown, PA
1940 LaSalle Convertible Sedan
Cadillac saved the best for last, and few would have guessed from the 1940 models that LaSalle was near the end of its road. Wheelbase was now lengthened to 123 inches, and horsepower edged up to 130, thanks to a larger carburetor. Styling, an evolution of 1939, was hard to fault, and there were now two model groups for the first time. The lower-priced Series 50 wore conventional lines, again on the corporate B-body shared with Buick and other divisions. The new Series 52 Special proved more popular by far despite a $120 price premium. One factor was undoubtedly the smoother, lower appearance of its new torpedo-inspired GM C-body. Each series offered coupe, four-door sedan, and convertible coupe and sedan. The last two saw very low production: just 599 and 125, respectively, in Series 50 trim, a mere 425 and 75 of the 52s (which weren't available until mid-season). The Series 50 also included a two-door sedan, which was Cadillac's least expensive 1940 offering at $1240. At the other end of the scale, the Series 52 listed at just $81 higher than a comparable Buick Roadmaster, thus representing excellent value in a big, high-fashion automobile. Model year sales perked up to a little more than 24,000 units, the make's second best single-season total.
You don't run across many 1940 LaSalle Convertible Sedans as this is one of just 75 built in 1940. So, when you do, you should realize how quick you should own this one. While this example is not perfect by any means, it's all there and will make some lucky person very happy. This car has the reliable 322ci flat head V8...the same engine that was used in the Cadillac, which manufactured LaSalle's. This engine sports 130hp and is backed by a 3-speed transmission with a column shifter. Like most convertibles this car has leather covered seats in dark blue which accent the light blue paint and white top. It does have incorrect Cadillac wheels on it. The lines of this car, all the chrome trim and that beautiful grille are just jaw dropping. Look closer at this one, its ready for restoration. The engine turns over, but has not been started in a number of years. It is being sold on a Bill of Sale only with no title.
