The 1955 LaSalle II Roadster is a concept car by General Motors. In the mid fifties, some executives at GM decided to revive the old LaSalle nameplate which was an old sister brand to Cadillac. Harley Earl took a great interest in this idea, and had his team at the Art & Colour Section draft up two different concepts. One was the small roadster you see here which was was launched alongside a 6-passenger sports coupe. Both were named LaSalle II to mark the reemergence of the old brand. Buck Rogers was responsible for the styling of new LaSalles and he used some daring design cues as well as some from LaSalle’s earlier production cars. The concept made its debut at the 1955 GM Motorama.[1]
