1948 DeSoto Custom 1. Beautifully restored at some point in its life and has had little use since. 2. The flathead 6 cylinder purrs like a kitten with an intact appropriately quiet exhaust system. The carburetor was just rebuilt and a new fuel pump installed. 3. The interior was exquisitely done very clearly from a high quality custom car experienced upholstery genius. The headliner is quite notable and done very nicely with a very distinct attention to detail and quality. All the doors and door handles work as they should and all the windows work as they should however the rear driver\'s passenger window feels like it needs to be lubricated I did not force it but it is connected and does move a little bit up and down but rather than force it somebody needs to take the door panel off and lubricate the mechanism. 4. The suicide doors are cool cool cool and it has all new door seals etc. 5. There is some rust on the front bumper pads and also the rear. Some re-chroming recommended on a few pieces where the chrome has started to rust all in all it is in excellent condition. Please take note of all the pictures. 6. It needs a glove box door. Two pieces of chrome trim on the rear fenders seem to be missing. Also it looks like on the trunk there might be some sort of a logo or something that might be missing there. 7. We are working on the brake system and are replacing parts as necessary. 8. This is an incredible barn find that is 95% complete and certainly a perfect mini project for a connoisseur who understands and appreciates the quality and value of this vintage machine.
