Description:

1949 DeSoto Custom Custom

A barn find car out of Colorado, and yes, it is solid, complete and rust free. It was bought out of a rural CO barn a number of years ago and then moved to a storage building in NE until it shipped to me in Florida. I have to figure out what I want to do with it.


It is a very solid ( no rust or Bondo or body damage ) car, with faded paint but incredibly nice stainless and chrome and an original interior that just needs a good cleaning. Last inspected and driven in 1966 but tagged in storage until 2019.


I had the car start up and purring like a kitten from an auxiliary gas can feeding the fuel pump ( did not know what was in the tank or lines ) and there was no smokin, leaking or dripping - and that is all I have done with the car or will do except for taking to car to a friends garage to have him pull and clean the fuel tank and lines next week so that the aux gas can won't be needed to run the car.


It is at the point where I will store it for a few years here in Florida until I finish up with 3 other antique cars we own that are in the midst of a restoration, or just pass it on to someone who is interested in a restoration of a solid time capsule or street rodding it since it is a 2 door Coupe.


The car does have the rare side rain deflectors according to people in the Mopar community and the more I look at it, the more astonishing it is as a time capsule.

There is a clear title for the car. Otherwise, I am fine if it sits until I get around to it so lowball offers will be ignored and I want nothing in trade. We have over 30 restored vintage cars in our collection and ideally I should be selling more than the couple I have for sale but as this is a manual shift car, it is in our list of cars we do not want long term and are just keeping our automatic transmission cars. This is a 74 year old used car sold as is, where is, with no warranties.
