Lot #1265.1 - LaSalles dramatic design was by Harley Earl and its V8 power and luxury appointments put it in a niche just above Buick in Alfred P. Sloan's aspirational ladder. By 1931 LaSalles used the same 353cid V8 as Cadillac but still had distinctive design features that emphasized its sporting qualities and made it a favorite among celebrities, sports stars and the social elite. This 1931 LaSalle 345-A wears lovely 7-passenger touring coachwork by Fleetwood. Finished in subtle burgundy with black fenders and body accents it is equipped with wire wheels and black wall tires that work together with the colors to subtly compliment the coachwork's refined lines. Restored to high standards, it is equipped with jump seats, dual sidemounts with mirrors, dual windshields, wind wings, a trunk rack, dual tail lights and chrome bumpers. Harley Earl's graceful LaSalle grille is set off by a pair of giant Depress Beam headlights. This is a great automobile with abundant power, a comfortable ride and plenty of room for family and friends.
