Purchased new on April 2. 1938 at Brewer Bros. in Burlington Vermont by a lady in Vergennes. Vermont as a summer car. I am the third owner. The car had a repaint in the original color quite a few years ago. At some point the seat was reupholstered. Except for the paint and the seat the car is pretty much original. The tires were old and had flat spots so I replaced them with new tubes and wide white walls. I also had the brakes and wheel cylinders replaced. The car has never had any rust and I don't believe that it has ever been in an accident. The interior is beautiful except for a little staining on the headliner. The original curtains that hide the spare and the built in shelves of the salesman are still there and are in perfect condition and the spare  tire and wheel have never been on the car. I believe that it is probably the best original Desoto business coupe anywhere. It is up for sale because it's time for me to start reducing my collection.

I guess I need to ask the same questions as your previous contact, is the car still for sale?

What a beautiful car! Is it still available? Would you characterize it as a daily driver that is reliable?
kind regards
