1940 DeSoto Sportsman Sedan

Pre-War / Mid-Year

This Pre-War 1940 DeSoto Sportsman runs and drives well and appears to be very original. It is our understanding that it is a low mileage car that had only been driven sparingly for many years prior to being stored for a while before being purchased in 2006 for the huge Goat Hill Automobile Collection in Southern California.

At mid-year (1940) DeSoto came out with the Sportsman model which was a fancier four-door sedan featuring two-tone paint, two-tone interiors, chrome trim on door panels, a color steering wheel, two-tone wood grain on the instrument panel, and additional exterior chrome trim including windshield divider bar, chrome strips on the hood nose, and chrome strips along the fenders.

This car is equipped with a straight six engine, 3-speed column shift transmission with overdrive, running boards, exterior sun visor, dual fog lights, front bumper/grill guards, dual exterior mirrors, heater, radio, whitewall tires and center caps with chrome outer rims on the wheels... The car appears to have been repainted several years ago and still looks good as does most of the chrome.

All pictures were just taken for the eBay listing. The car's exterior and interior do show some aging and wear as you would expect from an original 75 year old car. Please see the pictures in the listing.
