Our stunning 1948 Desoto is for sale. She starts, runs and drives beautifully, and she's a serious head turner!
The fluid drive transmission is smooth and quiet.
Head lights, side lights, brake lights, indicators and licence plate light fully working. All gauges, lights and map lights work perfectly.
Exterior paint is excellent; chrome is bright; interior is excellent.
New temperature gauge fitted.
Original radio still works.

Brake master cylinder, brake wheel cylinders, fuel lines, plugs points, condenser and electric fuel pump all brand new.

I am only the third owner of the car and have all the original documentation and receipts from the cars first owner, purchased in New York in 1948.

I painted the car in New York Taxi colours on arrival in the UK and have been using the car for Weddings and Proms. I am selling the car due to a change in circumstances, and do not have anywhere to keep her anymore. She is a real eye catcher and attracts plenty of attention wherever she goes.

1940s Desoto's are very rare cars, but spare parts are readily available. Desoto were part of the Chrysler corporation and there is a mass of 'new, old' stock and aftermarket parts.

If you're in need of some fun in the summer or want to earn a bit of extra money in weddings and proms, or want something 'a little bit different', then this car is for you.

Viewing recommended and international buyers are welcome.
