Recommended Posts

I have some questions about my car. The first picture is from a advertisement i find on net of the same car. The car had then been painted and placed on an museum in Arisona. It come to Norway in 2015.

It has now been taken apart ,sandblasted, and i have started building it up again. I wonder if the color on the car and the engine is right. When i washed the engine, it was geein under the blue.

I am pretty certain the engine block and accessories were black and the cylinder head was silver. A 1931 DeSoto owner may prove me wrong in which case, I am always willing to learn.

I removed all the old paint, and i cant find any black. The number on the engine is the same that i find on the chassis.

Is this not an 1931 modell?

Yes, your car is a 1931 DeSoto SA6. My 1931 Dodge Brothers engines were green/gray color, but I am fairly certain that the 1931 DeSoto engine was black with a silver cylinder head. I would welcome any other's opinions on this subject.

Was the chassis number found near the left rear spring attachment? Here are a couple of 1931 SA6 DeSoto engines....
