All for the Love of a Classic Custom Cadillac La Salle

This delicious 1933 Cadillac La Salle Town Sedan is about as fine an example of a Classic Custom Vehicle as one would ever dream of owning. Dick and Jean Cheney who reside in the Lents District of Portland found this one of kind Custom Cadillac La Salle back in the state of Iowa. She’s not only a Classic she became a Custom when the previous owner decided the six cylinder Cadillac engine that came from the factory back in ’33 wasn’t quite enough power for super highway driving. So out with the flathead V-8 and in with a 472 ci V/8 producing about 375 HP. Add on a later model Caddy tranny and a matching rear-end and she is almost ready for the Freeway. Install Power steering, Air Conditioning and a 12 Volt Electrical System with Factory Caddy Gauges and now she’s a true classic custom Cadillac La Salle Town Sedan that can go anywhere, anytime in style. The Surf-Blue finish on this Caddy came from the Jaguar family and is about the only thing on this car that isn’t Cadillac. The wide whites on those monster big tires and wheels really finish this dream machine off, plus the light baby blue fabric interior is stitched with perfection and is in like new condition.

Mr. Cheney was with the George Lawrence Marketing group located in northwest Portland for a good many years. Mrs. Cheney was with the Portland Public Schools for thirty nine plus years. They are both active members with the Loose-Ends Car Club here in Portland area. A special note of interest: The 1933 Cadillac LaSalle just won a nice trophy at the Endless Summer Cruise-In in Gresham. We at Roddin & Racin NW Publication hope the Cheney Family has a nice big room to handle all the awards and trophies that you’re 1933 Cadillac LaSalle Town Sedan will be winning, from all the shows you enter her in.
