“Amazing, mostly original, immaculate DeSoto coupe. Great New Years project with a big upside! Mileage is indicated at 52,351 and by looking at the interior it would appear correct. The body is straight none of the usual rust issues. It would be hard to find a more original in this great shape. The previous owner modified the engine - you can leave it or restore it. The original replaced parts are in the very clean trunk. There is even a set of original keys”

Vehicle description

Ring in the new year with this hard to find Desoto coupe. The interior reflects the originality of this immaculate car. Dash and steering wheel are flawless. The seats are near perfect. Back seat has original plastic covering on it. Front seat is in great shape and original except for a panel of replaced material where you sit. Easily replaced with NOS fabric. The radio actually works. Look at the photos - hard to find a original interior like this. The body is straight, the chrome is in good to great shape. One small ding on side panel of chrome - easily fixed. Paint is original and shows normal wear, small dings - nothing major . Repaint and you’re close to a show car. Leave as is and it’s a head turning daily driver. The previous owner spent over $8,000 on the motor (included is a book with all receipts detailing what has been done to the motor). Any replaced original parts are in the trunk- should you want to bring the motor back to its more original state. The previous owner put mag wheels on the car-but the original wheel covers are included with the car. If you put on the correct white walls and add the wheel covers this car will present even more amazing. The car is in need of a new starter and ignition cable. The starter worked a few weeks ago but has stopped - I will leave that to the new buyer. The previous owner stated this Desoto spent many years in an auto museum which reflects the apparently low mileage of 52,351. This Desoto can be an even more amazing car with very little effort. Replace/fix the starter and ignition -add WWs and put on the wheel covers - your are good to go with a big upside in the value of this fine car. This car is also offered locally for sale and I reserve the right to cancel this auction should the car sell before the end of this auction.
