Rumble seat roadster. Needs new rubber step plates, large section of paint between rumble seat and rear window came off during cleaning that will need repaired. Nagahide type interior material, artillary wheels, drivers side collapsable luggage rack, running board step lamps. Steering wheel is wrapped with what looks like electrical tape so may have damage underneath? Overall condition looks very nice and presentable driver as is. Great candidate for full restoration hubcaps in place but show some damage. Correct headlights. Has a Frisco brand heater installed, some of the dash knobs have been replaced with modern plastic ones radiator cap is in office miles on odometer 54,533
Personal note: This car was probably the one they drove the most for fun. They even had the mailbox out in front of their house made up to look like it. They also refered to it as a 1928 and it may even be titled this way since some of the early production cars were.
four door sedan appears to be an older restoration with two tone blue paint, wooden wheels, cowls lights, body appears to be very solid and presentable as is. Some paint flaked off of the right side cowl just ahead of door during the cleaning process. Crank out front widow for cooling and roll down shade in the rear. Drive it as is after checking the brakes or restore it but it is hard to find a much better starting point. All correct trim is in place 32,686 miles on the odometer

My opinions and descriptions?
All of my opinions and descriptions of these cars are just that "opinions" I do not guarantee anything for accuracy so take it all
with a grain of salt and look at the pictures (and videos soon) when placing bids on these cars at the auction. Do not come back to me crying that the car was
not perfect because my description of nice varies from yours! I provide these images and descriptions as a public service only, I do not own nor have I owned
Any of these cars I was just a friend of the collector that amassed them and a Desoto collector and fanatic not seeking treatment! Also I am a terrible typer and not an english major so there will be lots of typos.
