  2. For Sale: 1940 Cadillac LaSalle 50 Convertible - $17,500 - Southern Vermont 1940 Cadillac LaSalle Convertible - cars & trucks - by owner -... (craigslist.org) Our 1940 LaSalle Series 50 convertible comes from the final year of LaSalle production. The car is finished in blue with a tan convertible top over a black interior, and power is from a 322ci Cadillac monobloc V8 paired with a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. Built on the General Motors “C” chassis with a body by Fisher, the car features dual side-mount spare tires, a Torpedo hood ornament, running boards, and turn signals.The Fisher body tag lists a body style of 5027, a two-door coupe, and a factory color of Knickerbocker Gray. The car is now finished in blue with a tan convertible soft top. Fender-mounted headlights and triple hood vents were part of a restyling for the model year, and optional fog lights are equipped.The steel wheels are equipped with LaSalle-branded hubcaps with good whitewall tires.The interior is upholstered in black vinyl with a metal dash and features a banjo-style steering wheel, a column-mounted shifter, waterfall dash trim, and manually operated windows. The five-digit odometer shows 91k miles. True mileage is unknown.Decoding the Fisher body tag yields the following information:• Style No. 40-5027 – Two-door coupe• Trim No. 23 – Black leather• Paint No. 4 – Knickerbocker GrayThe 322ci V8 and produced 130 horsepower when new. The car reportedly sat for several years before our acquisition. Recent work by the previous owner includes a fluid change and replacement of the battery and points.Please remember this car started life as a coupe and was converted to a convertible many years ago with a period correct top. The side-mounts were added. The mechanicals are good and can be enjoyed as a daily driver but the body and paint, for most people, will need attention. Overall, a #4 car that can be enjoyed as is or taken to the next level. No texts due to scams. Sold on a Vermont DMV Bill of Sale.Inspection and test drive encouraged.Reduced to $17,500 odometer: 91000 Contact: no phone listed.

  3. Sometimes, one just can't do anything with the lousy pictures they post:
  4. JamesR: If you do go inspect it, please give us a report of your findings and impression of the car.
  5. Its a massive amount for what is essentially a 1957 Dodge with an Italian coach-built body in the 1954 Firearrow show car design. Does anyone else think the rear looks dorky and poorly resolved? Like they ran out of ideas and just pasted something on to use '55-'56 Dodge taillights and bumper.
  6. Specifying the odometer has 'rolled over' is done when the seller has no way to verify whether the odometer mileage is correct. Its the same as cars sold "TMU" at the used car auctions "True Mileage Unknown". Its done to protect the seller from liability.

  10. Wonder if the original vinyl might be underneath those cloth covers. Naugahyde was notorious for becoming blisteringly hot when left in the bright sunshine with the top down, cloth covers were done to alleviate some of that painful experience. BTW, I doubt the sellers claim this car was once all turquoise, how many cars have we seen that the inside trunk is all completely color changed as well as the outside? Upon further inspection, the door jams show the turquoise but the trunk looks all white from the factory...huh?
  11. The next owner should mount a pair of taillights on the bumper brackets, if set-up temporarily, whenever its driven. A single dim left-side taillight in today's traffic is just asking for a disaster.
  12. An HPOF time-capsule! The new owner should treat it carefully and drive it sparingly, change out the functional, potential failure items with period-correct replacements 'aged' to appear original so as not to detract from the overall appearance.
  13. For Sale: 1956 Mercury Medalist 2dr sedan, manual shift - $11,500 - Union, KY 1956 Mercury Medalist - cars & trucks - by owner - vehicle... (craigslist.org) All original 2 dr. sedan with manual steering, brakes and a 3 speed manual transmission on the column. Runs and drives fine with new tires, battery and brakes. Good glass, decent interior and the old Y block runs like a clock! Can't confirm the mileage but from the appearance of things it could be correct. Would consider trading for old car with an automatic transmission. odometer: 34000 Contact: Donald W Wells call: (859) 3-8-four-six-8-two-six Copy and paste in your email: f68e6c925ac233acbfd17951f97d8463@sale.craigslist.org I have no personal interest or stake in the eventual sale of this 1956 Mercury Medalist 2dr sedan. Note: The Medalist was the lowest-priced Mercury for 1956, this two door sedan was the least expensive model at $2,254. Other than the two-tone white top and heater/defrost, the original purchase sprung for no other options visible in the photos. Someone added an antenna for an aftermarket radio.
  14. I knew this car wouldn't take long to sell for the price, it was in the range that these Studebakers in good condition trade. The President Classic would too, though colors will put many off although they're period. Studebaker offered a Mocha and Doeskin two-tone that was similar to the other car posted though more of a light tan with pink overtones. There was also Rosebud and Snowcap White which this might be a modern match or close. This 'Vice' President is Glenbrook Green Metallic and Snowcap White. The combination I'd love to find on a '56 President Classic is Cambridge Gray Metallic with Daybreak Blue. BTW: manual shift, see photo
