LaSalle History

1931 LaSalle Model 345A

Chassis number : 907685

Share on:

Sold for $63,800 at 2008 Automobiles of Amelia Island, RM Auctions.
The LaSalle cars were intended to fill the position between Buick and Cadillac; in many respects, they were basically a small Cadillac, though with a shorter wheelbase and a shorter stroke of the Cadillac V8 engine. New styling was added in 1931, including replacing the hood louvers with doors. The front featured a radiator stone guard that gave them a resemblance to the larger V12 and V16 models. An astonishing twenty body styles were offered, able to appease even the most discerning customer.

This particular example is a Fisher built convertible coupe with style 31668. It is painted in burgundy with deep crimson accent molding, white pin stripe and black fenders. Many years ago this car was restored; since then it has been well maintained and preserved. It is equipped with wire wheels and dual side-mount spares with chrome spokes. It is a First Place winner in the Classic Car Club of America and is recognized by the CCCA as a Full Classic.

In 2008 this 1931 LaSalle Convertible Coupe was brought to the 2008 Automobiles of Amelia presented by RM Auctions where it was estimated to sell for $80,000 - $100,000. It was offered without reserve which worked well for the buyer, who purchased the car for $63,800 including buyer's premium.
