Inline Chrysler 6 cylinder 251 cu/in (4.1l) flathead.
Powerflite 2 speed automatic transmission.
A very rare car with a total production run of only 225 vehicles.
There were 75,610 Desoto cars built in 1954.This station wagon is the only one in the UK i am led to believe and a rare car in the states also.It has been mostly re chromed and there is a lot of that famous grill.The Fulton visor has been recently fitted and new wheels and hubcaps. It's had a new cloth wiring loom and stainless exhaust front to rear,factory power brakes and steering.The car had a restoration ten years ago in the states to original specification and still shows well.It does have a few age related marks,chips and scars but holds itself well,recently winning a few shows in different categories even best Chrysler at 'Rally of the Giants'.
The rear window glass has a crack but is flat,it winds down to access the tailgate,the rear seats all fold flat to make a very large flat floor that you can then carry most items or sleep in if you wanted at a show or weekend....i have !
Great vehicle for a family or lots of friends.
The car came out of 'Gas Monkey Garage ' in Texas and is signed by Richard Rawlings in the glovebox.
So be different ....it still has loads of scope and nice being mostly original.
Thanks for looking any questions i'll try to help the details below.
