The final 1940 LaSalles were introduced in October 1939 with, as it had in its first year, a full array of semicustom body styles, including a convertible sedan. Harley Earl also oversaw this redesign. The LaSalle emerged with a smoothflowing design, its trademark thin radiator flanked by a series of thin chrome slots, giving it a futuristic look. In its final year sales of the LaSalle reached the second highest level ever at 24,133.
In the mid1920s, GM President and CEO Alfred P. Sloan perceived that his original five divisions Chevrolet, Oakland, Oldsmobile, Buick and Cadillac had price gaps that needed to be filled.
