1940 Cadillac Other
1940 LaSalle model 5219. Good solid original car. Dark blue with gray interior. Looks black in photos. Starts easily and runs around the yard but the brakes quit since parked. Has Cadillac flathead V8. Pinion seal leaks. Tires look great but are several years old. Jack & spares are in the trunk. Includes an expensive LaSalle restoration manual sold by the Cadillac Club. There is a little rust in the left rocker panel which appears to be a replaceable part . Also a very small amount in the dogleg on the left side. Interior has been damaged by beetles and needs new fabric and headliner. Seat frames springs cotton padding all good. The interior was original and decent until it went into storage -- and bugs got the surface layer of fabric. Over $500 spent plating the extra hood ornament. This would be a great candidate to start building a show car. Could be a driver with an interior and some brake fluid.
