The LaSalle was designed by Harley Earl, who later became head of GM Art and Colour, and was inspired by the Hispano-Suiza. It was named after the French adventurer, Sieur De La Salle, who explored the Mississippi River valley in 1682.

The 1939 LaSalle was characterized by a new, tall, narrow grille with side grilles, louvers at the rear of the hood side panels, headlights mounted to the radiator casing and 25 percent more glass area. It was powered by a 322 cubic-inch engine producing 125 horsepower and cost $1,475 new.

Although the LaSalle was stylish and performed well, its place in the GM marketing line-up was becoming less secure. 1940 marked the last year of LaSalle production.
