Regarding This Vehicle

1930 Cadillac LaSalle Fleetwood Rumble Seat Roadster

 This nicely restored 1930 Cadillac LaSalle Series 340 carries a Fleetwood-built roadster body complete with rumble seat. Loaded with accessories.  Beautiful maroon leather interior with black Hartz cloth top and boot. Full CCCA Classic.

The LaSalle, Cadillac’s famous companion car, was named after the French adventurer who explored the Mississippi River Valley in 1682. The LaSalle was introduced by General Motors in 1927 and was the vehicle that was responsible for the creation of the new Art and Style Department. This new department was headed by a young Harley Earl, who would later become one of the most respected figures in automotive design. Earl’s designs for the new LaSalle were inspired by the European built Hispano Suiza, which was one of the best looking vehicles during the 1920s. The new LaSalle was built on a shorter chassis and used a smaller V-8 engine than the Cadillac. The LaSalle was designed to bridge the gap between the Buick and the Cadillac, although it more resembled the Cadillac than the Buick.

    The 1930 model year saw the LaSalle being offered in sixteen body styles. Nine body styles built by Fleetwood and the remainder built by Fisher. All of the 1930 LaSalles were built on the 134” wheelbase chassis.

     This 1930 LaSalle Series 340 carries a Fleetwood-built roadster body identified as Body Style Number 4002

   Based on the information provided on the original build sheet, this is a very early 1930 model and was delivered on October 18, 1929. It was sold new in St. Louis, Missouri. The car retains its original engine number 606555. On the firewall is the original Fleetwood body tag, which identifies it as the 82nd roadster body built by Fleetwood in 1930. Today, this car still retains its original engine and original roadster body as specified on the build sheet.

      This example is an nice, driver quality restoration that has been used very little since the restoration was completed. The body appears to be in very solid condition and has been properly restored. Both doors fit the body with even gaps and margins. The hood aligns properly with the cowl and the radiator shell. The fenders fit the body well and show no signs of damage or repair.

      The body is finished in metallic moonstone gray and maroon. The paint presents extremely well but does have some flaws in certain areas, particularly around the door jams. The chrome accessories are in excellent condition showing little signs of corrosion or wear.

     The maroon leather upholstery and interior are in excellent condition. The black Hartz convertible top and matching boot appears is also very nice and fits the car well. The dashboard has been appropriately restored and is fitted with a proper set of gauges and controls.

    The correct 340 cubic inch/ 90 horsepower V-8 engine shows some signs of cosmetic wear but appears to have been well maintained and shows no signs of neglect or damage. The engine is complete and correct with its proper carburetor, vacuum tank and distributor. The chassis shows similar signs of use but is generally clean and presentable.

     This LaSalle is fitted with several period accessories including six wire wheels, a pair of Trippe driving lights, a rear mounted luggage rack, dual, side-mount spare tires, a rumble seat, a golf bag compartment, a radiator mascot, a stone guard, and white wall tires.

   All LaSalles built from 1927 through 1932 are considered to be Full Classics ™ by the Classic Car Club of America. The Fleetwood roadster is considered to be the most desirable of all the LaSalle body styles and it is believed that less than 10 authentic examples exist today.
