Vehicle Description

1941 DeSoto Custom Two Door What a great find! Our seller (who will be 90 on his next birthday!) has owned this well-loved DeSoto for almost 20 years. He found it when it was owned by the original family that purchased it when new. The documentation includes laminated copies of the original title and paperwork as well as the original dealer brochure. During his stewardship, he has restored is as needed to keep it original in appearance as well as mechanically. He was told when he purchased it that the mileage of just less than 38,000 is true, original, actual mileage and as a retired Chrysler Engineer, he believes it to be so. Regarding restoration, the car was repainted in the original color of Navy Blue (looks to be Dupont #6049). He has an album with pictures of the work for historical interest. The undercarriage looks excellent as you can see in the pictures. Mechanically, it starts, runs and drives as you would expect a vehicle with life long excellent care should. It was driven from our sellers home to our location (about a 40-minute drive). Most of the fabric of the interior is original and for his use as a weekend driver and enjoyment at the various local shows, he wanted to keep it that way. He provided minimal repairs as shown in the pictures. All of the dashboard items and details tend to support the low mileage and indoor storage and care over the years. Check out the trunk and the ORIGINAL spare tire with the pinstriped steel wheel. If you become its new owner, you ll find the trunk filled with boxes of spare parts and items that Hermann gathered over the years and a car cover as well. You ll love the attention and the conversations this very cool DeSoto will spark! And, it s such a great low dollar investment to enjoy the classic auto hobby and high-quality community! The 1941 model year marked the lauch of DeSoto s Rocket bodies. They were longer, wider, featured a lower belt line and alligator-style hood. In an attempt to curb battery theft, DeSoto
