Deluxe 4-door sedan due to the war 1942 production was very limited and was the only time that Desoto featured hidden headlights. Grille is rough but complete. The lighted plastic hood insert is lying on the front seat. Steering wheel horn ring center bad, missing right rear fender trim has radio and appears to have overdrive. Right taillight lens is missing. 45,689 miles on the odometer. Steering wheel cracked but restorable when it comes to 42 Desoto’s this is a great starting point!

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.
