C2-01 1934 LaSalle 50 Fleetwood Convertible

Conceived by Harley Earl and introduced in 1927, the new LaSalle series presented a more dashing image for General Motors, different from its rather conservative Cadillac range at the time. The name LaSalle was chosen for the French explorer Robert de La Salle who accompanied Antoine de La Mothe Cadillac in founding the city of Detroit in 1701. Considered to be one of the most fashionable American automobiles of its day, the LaSalle was also a pioneer in its paint schemes; after the introduction of DuPont’s revolutionary fast-drying Duco paints, the LaSalle was offered in a wide range of colors. To promote the convertible coupe as a sporting model, a model similar to this car was chosen as the pace car for the running of the 1934 Indianapolis 500. Owned in 2014 by Sam & Emily Mann, Englewood, New Jersey
