1961
This is the last year of domestic Desoto passenger car production. Since Chris knew it would be the last and he was already collecting Desoto’s he went down to his local dealership and bought a 2-door hardtop new! He said that he had always kept it stored inside and did not drive it much. The overall condition of the car is great with the damage to the left rear backup lamp surround being the only damage I saw. The interior is in real good shape and I will be glad to see this one cleaned up. This was stored in the shed close to the house in the front behind the 58 so it was hard to see when it was at the farm. Body appears very solid! Mileage on the odometer is 5,914.9 yes-just shy of six thousand miles that I believe are original but I look forward to seeing it cleaned up.

My opinions and descriptions?


    All of my opinions and descriptions of these cars are just that "opinions" I do not guarantee anything for accuracy so take it all with a grain of salt and look at the pictures (and videos soon) when placing bids on these cars at the auction. Do not come back to me crying that the car was not perfect because my description of nice varies from yours! I provide these images and descriptions as a public service only, I do not own nor have I owned Any of these cars I was just a friend of the collector that amassed them and a Desoto collector and fanatic not seeking treatment! Also I am a terrible typer and not an english major so there will be lots of typos. .
