For sale at auction: Lot #356 - As an American classic, this 1951 DeSoto 9-passenger started its life serving our country as a US Army vehicle transporting a two star general. It received a new clutch in 2007, as well as new brake lines, custom built exhaust and new radial tires. It has the original 6 cylinder 250cid engine with new valves installed in 2009. The current owner installed an aluminum radiator in 2010, but car comes with the original in a box. The tip-toe transmission shifts properly, is a quite ride and floats down the road. There is also a replacement rear bumper which comes with the car. It is an excellent daily driver. 600 produced in 1951 and 1952.
