This is an absolutely stunning example of an originally kept 1948 DeSoto which has been owned by our seller for the past 36 years! The vehicle was originally purchased in Youngstown ohio 1949. and stayed with the original owner until the mid 1970's. Since the late 70's It has been restored and maintained with all original parts and everything is in wonderful working order (including the clock)! Our seller has maintained an extensive and complete list of all the working including gas fill ups!

 

Some of the rare factory options on this car include a speedometer that changes colors (determened by your speed). "semi-automatic" transmission. factory self canceling turn signals. standard hazard flashing system. and top-of-the-line dual heater setup with washable filters - again all maintained and in excellent operable condition.
