And if the front end of the La Salles look familiar, then compare the shape of the front fenders, with those flat fins over the headlights, to those of the 1959 Studebaker Lark and 1960 Valiant.
Now we know where Studebaker and Chrysler found their design inspiration.
As we related in the first instalment of this series, the La Salles and the Chevrolet Biscayne were supposed to be destroyed at Warhoops junk yard in Sterling Heights, Michigan in the late 1950s, after their dream car usefulness had expired.
Lucky for us someone ignored the directive.
The roadster has been restored and the sedan is in the process of being returned to its Motorama elegance.
