Cadillac Other 1940 Description

1940 Cadillac Lasalle*NO RESERVE*
This is a good looking and nearly complete, early drivable 1940 Cadillac LaSalle. The outside looks good, ut not flawless, he inside shows deterioration of the carpet, oor panels upholstery and headliner, ut the items are all there. The steering wheel is crap, nd will need full restoration. The windows are all there, n good shape, nd all work. The doors close and latch very nicely with an authoritive “thunk”.
The Good:*Good glass*So-so repaint job from the 80's and been garaged since*Chrome parts are all there, ut are slightly to modernly pitted*Grill and trim have some damage, ut are all there*Rebuilt Carburetor *Engine Turns and fires (but does not run)*New Battery*Very Little Rust*Hub caps are all there (just not in photos)
The Bad:*Engine turns but does not start, wo valves are stuck. This is not uncommon with the flat head V8, arnish builds up and sticks the valve in whatever position it was in. *the wiring is complete and all there, ut the insulation is brittle (lets just say we do not leave the battery connected...)*Hub caps are all there, eed refinish*Tires are quite old and need to be replaced*Hand brake works but foot brakes do not work. The brake system is complete, ut it has been sitting for a long while. *Some surface rust on chrome but no serious rust on the bodywork.*Interior is quite tired, ut mostly complete
This thing will take some work to get road-worthy, ut it is a good solid set of bones, rim and bits to get you going.
