37 LaSalle Radio Delete Plate
« on: December 25, 2017, 04:28:06 PM »
Hello all,
 I know that this item is probably as rare as hens teeth, but I am in need of a radio delete plate for my 37 LaSalle. I don't really want to find a radio head or entire radio to install. I find that I am more interested in listening to the music of the engine than anything else. (Corny, I know). If anyone can set me on the right path, I would be very grateful! Thanks,  Paul

I too was after these delete plates for my 36 and my 37 Cadillacs for many years Paul.
I would imagine the script on yours actually reads  'LaSalle' as opposed to 'Caddilac?      I had some reproductions cast some years ago for my cars. These are raw Aluminium blanks that have a very faint script  'Cadillac'  The rear lugs have to be drilled and threaded.
With a Dremel, I etched the name better and super polished them. If you don't mind them reading 'Cadillac' in your LaSalle they may get you by, or you could polish this out and re-scribe 'LaSalle on there??

I bought one on ebay a couple months ago. People don't know what they are and don't list them as radio delete plates. The ones I saw were listed as LaSalle script or emblem so don't specify radio delete plate.
