As it turns out ... Sixguns is correct ... the car is a Cadillac ... but was listed as a LaSalle in the photo listing. That is undersatndable because LaSalle and Cadillac were brother/sister type companies ... like Ford/Mercury or Rolls/Bentley

This is a 39 LaSalle ...

Not much difference really ... mainly front sheet metal ... still a very heavy ... long wheelbase upscale vehicle for 1939.

The LaSalle already has a IFS ... designed by Cadillac ...
