The LaSalle company was formed by General Motors in 1927 as an alternative model to the Cadillac. The LaSalle line was designed by the famous Harley Earl who worked in the newly formed Art and Colour department. Inspired by the best American and European marques the elegant LaSalle was created. The design was so successful that within a few years the Cadillac vehicles were updated to resemble the LaSalle. The Chevrolet Tourer was around 205 Pounds in 1930, the LaSalle was 2,650 Pounds, the average wage was only 215 Pounds!This sensational 1930 LaSalle Series 340 7 Seat Sedan is in exceptionally original, complete and unrestored condition, its history is known from new. The paintwork, trim, and chrome are original, rubbed through in a few spots but show a wonderful patina. The engine has been totally rebuilt within the last 1,000 Miles, it drives beautifully. The 1930 Series 340 LaSalle has a 5.3 Litre 90HP V8 engine, 3 speed transmission with syncromesh and good mechanical 4 wheel brakes, it is a pleasure to drive. This rare unmolested survivor is one of only 49 LaSalle cars ever imported to Australia, only a handfull remain, about 1500 of this model produced and very few in RHD. Its first owner was Sleights Undertakers of Melbourne (used as a mourning car), then sold to Allchurch of Adelaide in the 30s for use as a hire car. At this time an Altimeter was fitted in the dash for the benefit of tourists when driven up to Mount Lofty!This amazing car can be used and enjoyed as is or easily improved if desired. This rare car in my opinion should not be restored but maintained in its original condition, it is an outstanding investment.
