Convertible Sedan
Coachwork: Bohman & Schwartz
Coachbuilders Bohman & Schwartz built this one-off 1939 LaSalle and it is noted as one of the most dramatic 'Art Deco' custom builds of the late 1930s. Legend has it the LaSalle was commissioned by Don Lee Cadillac of Los Angeles for the President of Marchant Calculating Machine Company, who upon seeing Clark Gable driving his Packard Darrin was unsuccessful in ordering a duplicate. In the 1970s Dr. and Mrs. Alfred Barrows of San Francisco, California reported they purchased the car new upon falling in love with it on a showroom floor of a Bay area Cadillac dealer. Notably the LaSalle had already been additionally customized with dual side mounts (each holding reserve gasoline tanks). At some point they painted the car white and sold it in 1951. It is noted as carrying dignitaries in the Rose Parade and was shown at the Sixth Palm Springs Road Race Concours in 1954. By 1959, the driver's door was damaged and with mechanical repairs unfinished, the LaSalle was locked away in a Los Angeles garage until 2013. The 2018 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance was the first time it had been seen publicly since 1959.
