This 1938 DeSoto is a barn find from the 1990’s. It is offered at a NO HAGGLE PRICE! It appears to have been built as a show car in Texas in the early 1990’s. We do not have much history on the car, but here is what we know. The engine is a 403 Oldsmobile/Pontiac engine from an early 80’s Trans Am. The suspension, steering, air conditioning, cooling, brakes, as well as both front and rear frame sections are from the same Trans Am. The body started as a 1938 DeSoto Business Coupe. It has been heavily modified with a 1937 Ford grille, 1990’s Lincoln headlights, Miata door handles, suicide doors, frenched mirrors, custom taillights, and a custom interior. It has been lowered and lengthened. The car has working lights, high beams, wipers, turn signals, third brake light, and seat belts. The tilt steering column and power windows are from a 1980’s Cadillac. The hood is fiberglass but the remainder of the car is steel. The body and paint present very well but have some minor blemishes in a couple of areas. After acquiring the car we replaced the starter, carburetor, and battery, rebuilt the windshield wipers, drained and cleaned the fuel tank and fuel system, replaced the tires and wheels, rebuilt the brakes, and changed the fluids. The car drives well and can be used daily if desired. It does need work if you want it to be a true show car. This is a beautiful car that gets looks wherever it goes.
