1950 DeSoto Custom Sportsman - 2 Door Hardtop - Low Miles
This is a very nice original DeSoto Custom Sportsman and it runs great! It was a Utah car that has been part of a large Auto collection in Southern California over the last 9 years. The car looks as good as it does in the listing photos that were just taken this week.The previous owner stated that the miles were correct and the condition of the original parts on this car leads us to believe that it does have only 34,240 miles.
The car was painted a few years ago and the top color was changed to white at that time. The body is very straight with no signs of rust. (There are some chips and minor scuffs/scrapes.) The chrome grille and bumpers are in very good condition.
The interior looks to be original except the seats appear to have been redone along the way. The door panels and headliner are showing some age. The dash is very nice with original working gauges. However, the radio doesn't seem to work.
Under the hood, everything in the engine compartment looks to be very original and the car still has the factory labels, tags and paint ok marking on the firewall.
We will be including some extra parts that we have for the car including the Mississippi license plate. (See photos) The car was/is not registered in Mississippi but we have this plate on the car for show purposes since it says DESOTO.
In 1950, DeSoto had a record setting year manufacturing over 130,000 vehicles but the production of Custom Sportsman Hardtops was limited to only 4,600 cars. The 1950 Sportsman is 207 inches long outstretching many Mercurys, Oldsmobiles, Buicks, and Packards. Sportsmans all came equipped with Fluid Drive, Tip-Toe Shift and the 112hp Powermaster Six had both an oil filter and air filter.
This car is well over 60 years old so we are selling it as-is. The car can be viewed in the Newport Beach area and we are available to answer any questions or even send additional photos if needed. Please call 949-642-7447 to make an appointment to view it or if you need additional information. The buyer is responsible for all shipping costs but we will assist the buyer in the shipping process.
