The 1935 LaSalle’s were Cadillac’s in all but name with new bodies, chassis, brakes and coil spring independent front suspensions. Power came from an inline eight-cylinder engine with 240 cubic inches displacement and 95 horsepower. The 1935 LaSalles' hydraulic brakes were the first in the Cadillac family. Offered in only four body styles, the 1935 LaSalles enjoyed coachwork by Fleetwood exclusively and their dramatic, machine age design aerodynamic appearance showed the way for Cadillac and the rest of GM in the closing years of the Thirties, particularly the five round hood side vents. This convertible coupe has a sleek low raked windshield that gives it a hot rod look with the top up or down and integrates neatly with the raked radiator, streamlined teardrop fenders, hood vents, biplane bumpers and dropped body sides that concealed the frame. It is an older restoration very attractively presented in Maroon with black leather upholstery, black carpets and a tan cloth top. Accessories include an unusual small spotlight-mirror combination. The interior features plentiful wood grain trim and a particularly attractive instrument panel with businesslike black face gauges with stark white graduations. The red disc wheels mount white sidewall tires. To promote the all-new 1934 LaSalles a convertible coupe like this paced the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race on Memorial Day weekend. This isn't the pace car, but it comes with a set of large black magnets which completely cover the doors and look like hand-lettered pace car emblems. Documentation includes a copy of the original Cadillac invoice to the selling dealer, G.W. Shroyer & Company in Dayton, Ohio, a shop manual and several articles on the '34 LaSalle line. It is a class act, a fine automobile, and one that incorporates a number of advanced attributes that make it a lively and enjoyable car to show, tour or cruise.
