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.

Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to present this ultra rare and desirable 1966 Shelby GT350 Fastback Mustang. Documentation and known history are two important attributes for collector cars. This 1966 Shelby GT350, SFM6S2185, possesses plenty of both. As noted in the Shelby American Automobile Club’s “Shelby Registry 1965-67,” the GT350 was shipped from the Shelby American assembly facility in Los Angeles to Ford Motor Company in June 1966, then delivered to Courtesy Motors in Littleton, Colorado. In the 1970s, the Shelby was owned by a southern California detective who sometimes used this beauty as an undercover vehicle. Since 1979, it has been in the hands of collectors to ensure it was cared for through the years. During the 1980s, it participated in west coast shows, including SAAC-6 and the Palo Alto Concours D’Elegance. From 1987 to 2013, the GT350 was owned by a private collector; a 1988 restoration resulted in numerous Best of Show awards, perfect scores from both SAAC and the Mustang Club of America, and features in several magazines. “Super Ford” magazine named it “the best Shelby of the year” for 1989. The Guardsman Blue GT350 retains much of its original equipment, including the factory-installed 4-speed transmission and matching-numbers 289 Hi-Po V-8 that was modified to Shelby specs for 306 horsepower. Like all 1966 GT350s, the car was delivered to Shelby American as a K-code Mustang fastback, then upgraded with a Cobra aluminum intake with Holley carb, Tri-Y headers, Koni shock absorbers, rear traction bars, 15-inch wheels, dash-mounted tachometer, competition seatbelts and wood steering wheel. Externally, the Shelby models differed from regular Mustangs with a fiberglass hood with scoop, plexiglas rear quarter windows and side scoops. Only 2,378 were built. In 2014, this car underwent a fresh restoration by Orlando Mustang, which resulted in Best in Class awards at the 2104 Keels and Wheels Concours D’Elegance and the 2015 Valero Show. It was featured in the July 2015 “Mustang Times” and displayed at the Bush Library from August to October 2016.
