1957 Desoto Adventurer
Coupe Car for sale by Daniel Schmitt and Co. in Saint Louis, Missouri 63074
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

A collector’s dream
The 1957 DeSoto Adventurer Sportsman Coupe featured here is finished in the stunning color combination of Adventurer Gold over a black body and Adventurer Gold sweep with a lovely black and gold interior. This particular example is one of only 1,650 built and in 1961 it was acquired by midwest drag racing legend Jerry Saar. Mr. Saar was a lifelong MOPAR enthusiast who assembled and raced several funny cars throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s. Jerry and his brother, Ron Saar, built and opened Lee County Dragway in 1969, which they operated until 1988. Throughout their two decades of racing, Lee County Dragway hosted numerous A.H.R.A. and several N.H.R.A. events. Jerry Saar was known to use his black and gold Adventurer as a tow vehicle to pull his race cars to and from events at Lee County Dragway. Today, this DeSoto presents wonderfully with a mere 77,000 miles on the odometer. Several rare factory options adorn this Adventurer including air conditioning (not currently operable), AM radio with dual antennas and the seldom seen Highway HiFi in car record player. It was previously subjected to a sympathetic restoration and we are proud to offer this stunning 1957 DeSoto Adventurer Sportsman Coupe to the most particular investor, collector or enthusiast who appreciates the luxury and performance of this classic MOPAR.
