1950 DeSoto Custom Sportsman

1950 DeSoto Custom Sportsman

Here's American antique full size sedan produced by DeSoto. It's a DeSoto Custom Sportsman built in 1950 on 2 Door Hardtop. 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.

Detail about this car
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.

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.
