1947 DeSoto Custom Convertible
AUCTION RESULTS: Car was Sold at a price of $60,000

109bhp, 236.6 cu. in. L-head inline six-cylinder engine, Fluid Drive transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 121.5"

Finished in black with a dark red and parchment interior, the lovely DeSoto on offer is a Custom Convertible, of which only 8,100 examples were built from 1946 through early 1949. The number of survivors is even lower and they are rarely seen in today's market. This particular car also benefits from a total nut-and-bolt, frame-off restoration that was conducted to exacting standards. It is equipped with the aforementioned Fluid-Drive transmission and such additional accessories as a spotlight, grille guard, bumper guards, radio, fender skirts and whitewall tires. This Custom Convertible continues to be a show quality car, equipped with a power top and every amenity expected of such a fine postwar automobile.
