1930 DeSoto CK Roadster

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1930 Desoto Roadster for purchase. The DeSoto make was founded by Walter Chrysler on August 4 1928 and introduced for the 1929 model year. It was named after the Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto. Chrysler wanted to enter the brand in competition with its arch-rivals General Motors Studebaker and Willys-Knight in the mid-price class. Shortly after DeSoto was introduced however Chrysler completed its purchase of the Dodge Brothers giving the company two... mid-priced makes. Initially the two-make strategy was relatively successful with DeSoto priced below Dodge models. Despite the economic times DeSoto sales were relatively healthy pacing Dodge at around 25000 units in 1932. In fact when DeSoto first came out in 1929 it broke the first-year sales record with 81065 cars sold and was not beaten until 1960 by the Ford Falcon. The 1930 Desoto Rumble seat Roadster offered here is a very unique car and shows well. It features an inline 6 cylinder engine paired to a manual transmission. The car runs and handles as it should. The car rides on 19 inch wooden spoke wheels complete with a rear mounted spare wheel and tire. The cloth convertible top remains in good condition as well. The chrome radiator shell and the bumpers in the front and rear are also in good condition. This car is sure to please and is a blast to drive.
