1939 LaSalle Ambulance Restoration Photo Gallery

The 1939 LaSalle restored by the V8 Speed & Resto Shop won first place in its class at the 2020 Cadillac & LaSalle Club Grand National Virtual Car Show over the weekend! Hundreds of cars were entered, and there were 40 or so LaSalles in its class, but the red 1939 ambulance took home top honors. Congrats to the owner and the V8 Speed & Resto Shop team on another first place win! We’re fortunate for the opportunity to work with great people on great cars! #showwinner #v8speedshop #restoration

We chat about the project in this V8 Radio Podcast Episode:

This 1939 LaSalle ambulance / hearse was originally commissioned in the town of Red Bud, IL… which happens to be the home of the V8 Speed & Resto Shop!   We’re excited to change the color and tune up the appearance of this originally hand-built coach.    Follow along with the photos to see the progress!

LaSalle was a notch below Cadillac, but offerend power and style beyond most contemporary automakers of the time.
