  10. 1937 LaSalle Convertible Roadster Project for sale or trade. Chrome done! Tons of new parts to build a wicked ride! If you are looking for a big project and to build an amazing rare late 30’s convertible coupe, please read on. This rare two-seater GM convertible body features both a rumble seat and trunk. (GM’s last year for a rumble seat.) The body and frame is from a 1938 Pontiac cabriolet that uses the same convertible body as LaSalle and Cadillac. The BAD news: Due to the poor and rusted out condition of the Pontiac fenders and floors, we decided to save the roadster body and build a 1937 LaSalle by using excellent parts from a solid California LaSalle donor car. We started replacing the floors and rockers, as well as the firewall, cowl and rear fender wells. This project still needs a lot of fabrication work, including squaring up the doors, replacing rusty trunk/rumble floorboards, convertible top work, and mechanical fabrication. This project includes a Helix Mustang II IFS Coil Over Stock 5x4.75 Power LHD Rack with sway bar and four link rear end suspension kit. The GOOD news: This project also includes an excellent and complete set of rust and dent free LaSalle body parts (everything you need) including the hood, hood sides, headlight buckets, front and rear fenders, running boards, doors, dash, cowl, firewall, floors and rockers. Best of all we have over $10K in very nice re-chromed trim parts (still wrapped in newspaper from being re-chromed in the 80’s) bumpers, bumper guards headlight rims, a perfect grill, hood ornament, hood trim, window trim, running board trim, all inside and outside handles and excursion plates for all doors, trunk and the rumble seat. The chrome is amazing, and would cost a fortune to find and re-plate in today's market. The package includes the following parts: Super rare 1937 Original GM roadster body/frame and convertible top mechanism and hardware (Paid $10k for car) 1937 LaSalle Donner car body parts. (Paid $12k) $10k in re-chromed trim parts. (still wrapped in newspaper from being re-chromed in the 80’s) (New in boxes) Glide Roadster and Rumble Seat. (Paid $1200) (New in box) Carbon fiber heated seat kit. (New in boxes) Helix universal 60.5 Front Steer Track Mustang II IFS Coil Over Stock 5x4.75 Power LHD Rack with Sway bar and four link rear end suspension kit, power window and door kits, new latches, remote control, trunk and rumble poppers $2300. (New in box) Vintage air heater and defroster. $250 All original dash components. Knobs, trim, speedometer, clock, gauges, radio control, map light, and lighter. (Gauges restored with new chrome by John Wolf for $1600) 1993 Chevy blazer 350 small block engine with AC pump and TBI and rebuilt 700R4 transmission. Over $40k invested. Take her home for $25,000 or trade for a 1927-1950 turnkey restored car. Ideally 1930-34. Love Nash, DeSoto, Chrysler as well as odd balls and unique orphan cars.Get out your welding torch and build yourself one of twenty in existence! When finished they sell for $100K+. The car is located in Oakland, CA and sold as is. The car does not steer or roll. No title. For more info, please contact John and include your email address.
  11. Priced reduced to $3800 for quick sale! Up for sale is this cool 1957 GMC long-bed step side project truck with 98" bed and large rear window. The truck has more than $3500 in brand new parts from Brothers Trucks (see below) and more than 200 hours in labor. The bodywork is more than 85% complete with new doors, cab corners, cab and fenders filled, inner fenders smoothed and filled. Please note that this truck is not painted black. It's in gray primer. Some photos were taken in the rain. The truck has new body parts from Brothers Truck Parts including; doors ($1400) bed front panel ($130) rolled rear pan ($180), bed sub-floor ($140), radiator support and other miscellaneous patch panels. I have a good large rear window and deluxe GMC trim which goes around it, along with a rare front GMC emblem. It does need a front windshield and door/vent windows. The previous owner stated engine is in good condition with less than 40k miles on it, it is a 1993 Chevy 350 from a truck with AC pump and TBI. I believe the transmission is a 700R4 and appears to be rebuilt. The truck has engine mounts crossbars and transmission mounts from Brothers ($180).

I also have a new radiator, some weather stripping, bolt kits, 2 new chrome headlight bezels ($90) and miscellaneous trim items. Clear CA title and current registration. Doors are not property hung, and aligned in photos. Bed is not attached to frame. No tailgate, or wood bed included.
