I am trying to arrange to go take a look at this '53 Desoto. According to the ad it runs & is drivable, but has floor & frame rot. So I'd be looking at either frame repairs or swapping the body onto another frame(which will be interesting to find a donor for as it is the 139" LWB version).
Either way a ton of work, but he only wants $500 for it. At that price I may buy it, part out everything but that amazingly toothy front clip and use the clip to decorate my garden.
