It was originally an Arizona car, the first owner was a pilot at Luke AFB...the stickers were still on the windshield when I bought it.

Gorgeous, always liked the white/gold version the best. I'm told those wheel covers are a real bear to find in good shape or restore.
About 15 yrs ago I was offered by a seller in Indiana yellow & white FireSweep 2dr with gold Adventurer caps and it looked really sharp with them!
Beautiful job, you can't rush these things!

Thanks for all the kind words! My Dad was a Chrysler Engineering interior design leader from 1957-1974...I also worked for Engineering for 35 years, most recently on the Viper Team for twenty years. We all love our Chrysler products, from old to new!

Absolute stunner! This is hands down the most beautiful body style DeSoto ever made (imho). These coupes are just so dynamic.

Awesome job on the restoration. While Iā€™m a ā€œ300ā€ guy myself, all the gingerbread on the DeSoto makes for a prettier package. Love it!
