  1. The pics you attached are the same car, but not the same interior. The interior i have has a little piece of chrome in the middle. oddly enough, the pictures you attached, that's what the one panel i need to replace looks like. George, I wouldn't mind seeing a picture of the grille you have.
  2. I am in need of a rear driver side interior window frame for my 1948 DeSoto Custom. For some reason, it does not match all of the other window frames. Ideas for where to look for a replacement will work as well if none are available through this forum's members. Thanks, Nic

  9. Hey guys, I'm Nic. Just joined the forum, hoping to get some pointers and insight on some stages for my new little project. I picked up a 1948 DeSoto Custom Sunday. Right now, I'm just sort of staring at it, planning my attack and making notes of what HAS to be replaced and what options I have when restoring. So far, I've decided on keeping as much as I can as it SHOULD look, but I'm running into problems finding parts and layout info. Right now, the main stopping point is the dash. i have no clue what all the levers do. I know a few, but not all. Nor where to find parts for the dash. Need a r
