General information

On the Gilmore Car Museum Campus.

The Cadillac-LaSalle Club Museum and Research Center opened at the Gilmore Car Museum on September 28, 2014 and serves as the permanent home of the organization’s collection of automobiles, display engines, and artifacts. The 10,000 sq. ft. museum is modeled after a 1948 dealership design from the pages of General Motors book “Planning Automobile Dealer Properties” of that year.

Prominent in the showroom and paying homage to the vintage dealership’s facade is a 1948 Cadillacs  60 Special Sedan.  It is accompanied by a 1937 LaSalle Convertible Sedan and an iconic 1959 Cadillac Convertible.

Guests will find nearly two-dozen automobiles within, including a very rare 1903 example from of Cadillac’s first year of production; a 1910 Cadillac Demi-Tonneau and 1957 Cadillac Brougham used in the film “Driving Miss Daisy,” as well as a 1992 Allante’ Indy 500 Pace car.

Besides the fantastic automobiles displayed within the museum, visitors will also find an array of artifacts, memorabilia and educational exhibits that tell the entire story of Cadillac and LaSalle. There are tributes to Henry Leland, Cadillac’s founder, the firm’s production history, its support of the Arsenal of Democracy during World War II, and its history of providing Presidential limousines.
