The DeSoto Custom is an automobile produced by DeSoto from 1939 until the 1952 model year. While in production, the Custom was DeSotos top-trim level car, and was offered in a wide array of body styles, including a 7-passenger sedan and the extended-wheelbase Suburban sedans. The Custom shared its engine design with the Deluxe, and were powered by Chryslers L-head 236.7 six-cylinder engine, delivering 109 bhp (81 kW) at 3,600 rpm. Custom models, along with Deluxe models, produced during the 1946, 1947, 1948 and first half of the 1949 model years used DeSotos prewar bodies. A fully redesigned Custom was launched in the second half of 1949, along with a redesigned Deluxe, and these cars are referred to as 1949 Second Series models. In 1950, the Custom range gained DeSotos first consumer-designed station wagon. The Custom also received DeSotos first hardtop coupe, which featured pillarless door design and which was trimmed to convertible standards. Standard equipment included two-speed electric windshield wipers, a trunk light and full carpeting.
