This is a nicely restored and very rare DeSoto Custom convertible that has been upgraded with a new crate 350 V8 and transmission, modern steering column and power front disc brakes.
This motorcar is part of a collection of a dozen cars we bought most with 350 conversions and less than 200 miles on the rebuilt drivetrains. This has benefitted by the installation of a new crate 350 cu in V8 with about 325 hp. It has 194 heads, a mild cam with an Edelbrock intake manifold and Edelbrock 600 carburetor. It has a new custom tube short headers with 2 ½ inch exhaust with turbo mufflers. The transmission is a new crate 350 automatic. All the brakes and front end components are CPP.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBfWA9aDUks[/youtube]
The restoration and paint are high quality and the car is ready for cruising. We will be adding additional details soon. We do not know all the history of this car and therefore do not know for sure the total mileage, but the drivetrain is fully rebuilt. Call Hal at 951-440-0412.
