1948 DeSoto Custom LWB sedan. Rare model. I purchased 5 years ago from original owner in L. A. CA. ! Intended to be a keeper from the start but. not enough time or space.

I did go through the brakes. carburator and had generator overhauled within past 4 years. Correct size and pattern tires have only about 5 miles on them! Spitfire 6 engine starts and runs on its own. just turn the key on and push the start button! Probably should be overhauled due to age and uncerainies but. doesnt leak oil or knock. Fluid Drive tramsmission shifts nice and doesnt appear to leak. Steering feels good and tight.  I just drive it in and out of garage or around my yard on occaision. It should be towed or trailered at this point any distance due to its age and uncertainties.

Body is very nice and straight. A few small dents. nbsp;dings and scratches but. overall nice for its age. Mostly original paint. No rust anywhere. Great body actually. Trim and chrome all nice original and complete. Doors open. shut and align nicely.

Interior is basically all there and untampered with but. needs to be redone complete. Its so brittle with age. it falls apart. Interior seat frames "bones"all very good and solid. Dash is nice and complete. Again solid floors. no rust. Some of the dome lights still come on when the doors are open!

My intentions with the car were to simply overhaul the engine. service the transmission. install new weather stripping in the doors and windows and have it reupholstered complete. That is all I believe it would require to be a nice driver while retaining its original patina.

Sold As-Is where is( IA 50621). clear CALIF title. no back fees. Please PayPal $250. 00 initially within 24 hrs. . balance in cash within 5 days (Cashiers check please wait 7 days to officially clear).
