According to Matt Larson's tedious research in the wonderful text, "LaSalle Cadillac's Companion Car", p.310 #2 Of the 21,799 factory built LaSalle production car, only two had a single right hand sidemount and 226 were equipped with dual sidemounts. Additional commercial chassis and CKD export Sedans were equipped with sidemounts.
For 1940 Series 50 page 345 #9 it was the last year of the sidemount fenders as an option on Cadillac motorcars. Of the 9321 Series 50 LaSalle passenger cars built, only 161 were ordered with sidemounts - their time had passed. There were none on the series 5011/5011A; 147 on the 5019; one 5019A; three 5027; four 5029 and six 5067 cars shipped with sidemounts. Sidemount fenders were not an option for the Series 52 LaSalles.
