Now available at our Philadelphia showroom, Gateway Classic Cars offers this great 1940 DeSoto Custom! Founded by Walter Chrysler in 1928 to compete with the mid-priced vehicles offered by Buick, Mercury and Oldsmobile, DeSoto, named after the famed Spanish explorer was a household name back in the 1930s and 40s. It conveyed a spirit of adventure and dependability, concepts that related to the average American car buyer of that day. By the early 1960s, DeSoto was put aside and the namesake was fondly remembered, but never brought back again. Now you have the chance to bring back the DeSoto name by taking home this 1940 Custom! Wearing a subtle green paint and matching cloth interior, this car takes you back to a unique time when the cars were sometimes bigger than the roads on which they drove! Powering this classic is the original 235 CID I6 Engine that gets you where you need to be! Driving is a breeze and quite fun with a three-on-the-tree manual column shifter! Open the suicide doors and take a peek inside; you’ll be taken back by the enormous space and the classic looks of the 1940s revered by auto enthusiasts! If you are looking for something different, not your run of the mill classic, here it is! Don’t miss the chance to take great car home today!
