Classic Car Overview

We know why youre looking at this 1937 DeSoto Rumble Seat Coupe. You want a truly unique classic that reminds you of a bygone era with every inch. But you also want a car that can be comfortably driven like a good classic should. You want it all, and thats exactly why we caught you looking at this one. This one instantly looks like a cut-above classic, and thats because there has been a ton invested in keeping this rare coupe looking so good. The proof is in the paint. It takes a professional hand and plenty of time to get a black that has a mirror-like finish. This high-gloss shine also highlights the straightness of the sheetmetal. And more than just line up correctly, the way you can shut the door with confidence tells you that the body is as solid as it looks. A true 30s machine also needs great brightwork. You can see a small fortune was spent in this area, but its also worth it. After all, the DeSoto has some unique flair with the dual waterfall grilles that seamlessly flow all the way up the side of the hood. Plus, the trim line wraps around the front end and runs uninterrupted down both sides of the coupe until it meets the art deco rear bumper. Plus, youll especially love the details, like the correct badging and optional dual rear taillights. And while you might be focused on the bright whitewalls, dont forget to check out the stylized DeSoto insignia on the wheel covers. The first thing you notice when you get inside is the paisley headliner. Its another great reminder of the thoughtfulness than went into this cars restoration. And while the door panels and seat have been re-finished in a crisp black, the paisley detailing makes this a full uniform interior. You get a great classic three-spoke steering wheel with DeSoto center cap, and the floor-mounted shift is a great place to rest your right hand. Youll love watching the DeSoto sunrise-style speedometer do its dance on every roadtrip. Plus, the correct AM radio and heater controls that are on display truly make this a time machine of an interior. And out back theres a rare rumble seat option that youll love to show off everywhere from car shows to parades. Not only is this upholstered to match the interior, but also this was a rare feature for 37 with only around 1,000 produced. And just think about how many survived over eight decades to still look this good today (in fact, this is only one currently listed in the National DeSoto Club!) The 228 cubic-inch motor has a fantastically honest presentation. In fact, we have the paperwork to prove this is the original motor still under the hood! The flathead inline six is a design that would power Mopar vehicles for years with incredible reliability. The engine bay looks very period-correct, with just the right upgrades to keep this one running in a modern era. For example, the silver head, single-barrel carburetor, and oil bath air cleaner are all what we expect to see in such an accurate classic. But the upgrade to a 12-volt system makes this a much easier machine to enjoy on the road. The three-speed manual transmission shifts easily, and because this want to be a true drivers classic, you get an upgraded front suspension with a sway bar and disc brakes. Something with such a unique story needs the right paperwork to back it all up. Thats why the sale comes with a binder full of a long history and plenty of restoration photos. You know something this rare and well-presented is a fleeting opportunity. So dont miss out, call today!
