1937 series 50 LaSalle


35terraplane
I did find a article that said a 1931 caddy 16Cly. had hyd brakes I found where they said on the post about a 1925 LaSalle had hyd brakes but when I read the article I could not find that they said the car had Hyd brakes on it.

Oldsmobile was the first GM division to adopt hydraulic brakes in 1934. Although after more research, it looks like LaSalle might have had them in '34 as well.

The next question is yours Bob.

Brian you were only one year off.LOL That was a hard one,one place gave a list of cars that had them by 1930 I think it was, GM was not listed So I quit looking because Olds was the only car not listed, I had LaSalle in mind but I always thought that was a cheap Cad.OH well here goes.

Where, What year, were Disc brakes invented, and on what kind of car?

Bob

Wiki says....

"Disc-style brakes development and use began in England in the 1890s. The first caliper-type automobile disc brake was patented by Frederick William Lanchester in his Birmingham, UK factory in 1902 and used successfully on Lanchester cars. However, the limited choice of metals in this period, meant that he had to use copper as the braking medium acting on the disc. The poor state of the roads at this time, no more than dusty, rough tracks, meant that the copper wore quickly making the disc brake system non-viable (as recorded in The Lanchester Legacy). It took another half century for his innovation to be widely adopted.

Modern-style disc brakes first appeared on the low-volume Crosley Hotshot in 1949, although they had to be discontinued in 1950 due to design problems.[1] Chrysler's Imperial also offered a type of disc brake from 1949 through 1953, though in this instance they were enclosed with dual internal-expanding, full-circle pressure plates. Reliable modern disc brakes were developed in the UK by Dunlop and first appeared in 1953 on the Jaguar C-Type racing car. The CitroŽn DS of 1955, with powered inboard front disc brakes, and the 1956 Triumph TR3 were the first European production cars to feature modern disc brakes.[2] The first production car to feature disc brakes at all 4 corners was the Austin-Healey 100S in 1954.[3] The first British company to market a production saloon fitted with disc brakes to all four wheels was Jensen Motors Ltd with the introduction of a Deluxe version of the Jensen 541 with Dunlop disc brakes.[4] The next American production cars to be fitted with disc brakes were the 1963 Studebaker Avanti[5] (optional on other Studebaker models), ...."

Posh

And, since that is not a valid question, my answer won't result in me having to think up a question - and I am all outta questions

WAY back when, the upper class of the world, when sailing to the middle east, would always want to be on the shady (cooler) side of the ship - which meant being on the Port side when heading east through the Mediterranean and on the Starboard side when heading back west. So the letters for Port Out, Starboard Home (P.O.S.H.) appeared on the luggage. Only the wealthy could affrod this special treatment, so they became known as the POSH set.

And no, I will not ask the next question as we are still awaiting the correct answer on 35Terraplane's disc brakes one.

You need to read thru the rules and regulations of the Triva game here on Hotrodders.
(clickhere)

Section 21.7884 paragraph #45 clearly states that only automobile related questions are allowed. And section 14.7851 paragraph 21 states that after someone has answered a question and the question poster has agreed to the answer the person who answered the question is then given the floor to ask his question.
