"One of the American, most handsome postwar cars with it hefty chrome detailing."


This car is in a very nice working condition. It is partially repainted and has some minor rust damage that’s been repaired a few years ago. The seat have been reupholstered and in a very good condition. Unlike the Business Coupé, the Club Coupé has a spacious rear seat with room for four passengers as well as the driver.
This De Soto has a straight six-cylinder engine of 3878 cc connected with a gearbox that in Chrysler called a Fluid Drive. As extra features, one can also mention opening side windows for rear seat passengers and roof mounted sun visor.
This car has been imported into Sweden almost 20 years ago and is still in a good condition.
Note! The hat in the pictures is not included.
De Soto was founded in 1928 by Walter P Chrysler. The aim was to break into the tough mid-price category in the American car market. On the last day of November 1960, the production of De Soto passenger cars was discontinued. The model as above was manufactured in the years 1946-1949.
Top speed 132 km/h. 0-100 km/h managed in 21.4 seconds
