Up for Auction: The Godfather's 1932 Cadillac LaSalle Model 345-B


The Godfather's 1932 Cadillac is a car you can't refuse.

Francis Ford Coppola's Godfather Trilogy redefined how the gangster epic is made. Well, maybe just the first two films, the third was a little... de trop if you will, too much. In addition to featuring several of our favorite actors, like Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Marlon Brando, Diane Keaton, et al. The film also featured one of cinema's most unsung heroes: the 1932 Cadillac LaSalle gangster car.

In addition to being incredibly cool and classy, the legendary four-door sedan carried its own weight next to James Caan and typified what a gangster ought to be driving, not the drivel that Tony Soprano rode in during his popular series (a Cadillac Escalade, if you were wondering). Maybe drivel is a bit harsh, but in comparison there isn't really any competition. Currently up for auction on Ebay, the Stanford Brown 1932 Cadillac LaSalle 345-B that featured in the Godfather is in terrific shape and as of writing this, can sit in your tasteful collection for a meager-for-a-postwar-car $27,200 (though the reserve is $39,500).

The car features Grisette Brown fenders and trim with an Ashburn Brown interior. It sits on a set of straw wire wheels with wide white tires. It 'runs and drives excellent,' as described by the owner, as it is powered by a 353 C.I. V8 mated to a 3-speed transmission that can put out 115hp. Mileage is seen at 28,106 miles. Check out the classic automobile on Ebay and make him an offer you can't refuse.
