Ford Roadster 468 CID V8 1923

General description : Up for sale now in our Houston showroom is this 1940 LaSalle. LaSalle was a brand of automobiles manufactured and marketed by General Motors' Cadillac division from 1927 through 1940. This one is the last year of the model and is the most sought after. In its final years, the LaSalle once again became more Cadillac-like in its appearance and details. This LaSalle is extremely custom & very cool looking with its dark gray paint matched to the blacked-out grille & trim really makes this street rod stand out from the crowd. This car started out as a barn find that was stripped down to the bare body, sandblasted & epoxy primered. It was then built completely from the ground up sparing no expense. The car has been freshly professionally repainted in February of 2017 in the dark gray paint you see today and the finish is excellent. Powering this hotrod down the road is a 454 CID V8 that shakes the ground as it commands the road. Paired to that V8 monster is a 3-speed automatic transmission that shifts smoothly through the gears as you cruise down the road. Both the engine & transmission have both been recently rebuilt with only 500 miles on them since that was completed so this car has been barely broken in with many miles ahead of it! Looking towards the interior you will find a vinyl two-tone seats & custom center console complete with CD player & cup holders mounted in it. The dash is custom & is paint matched to the car with Dolphin gauges & warning lights installed. The trunk has been finished as well with the same two-tone scheme with fitted carpet. The car sits on American racing wheels wrapped in Falken tires with plenty of tread left on them. ***We have restoration photos of this car*** Other features on this car include; CD player with AM/FM radio, power steering, tilt steering wheel, & vinyl interior.

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
