 Thank you for your comments and sticking up for me. I have to apologize for being ignorant on the specific year is that the three window coupe‘s were offered but for people to get all bent out of shape and request that my post be removed need to get a life.

Well we know market must be around 16G for one in that shape now,  or quite possibly higher as it was a buy it now and gone.  HArd to say where it would have ended up with bidding.  Maybe higher.  Can't be too many of them left in that shape.  Wither fully restored or a rough project car seems to be the usual case.

I think that Desoto would clean up really nicely.   The pictures stink,  but it looks pretty good under the dirt.   I think 15k for 41 Mopar business coupe that is running, solid and complete is probably about right.   There is quite a fluctuation depending on what year and condition we are talking about.   I personally prefer the 41,  although a 42 Desoto would be pretty cool with the hideway lights.

It's back up for sale.

 

That could be a great car,  but I just don't understand the auction.   Zero description and 5 crappy photos.    There might be a nice older restoration of a solid California car under there,  or a piece of crap.  No way to tell.

@34studepres The Desoto business coupe is re-listed with pic of engine.  Would be a fun car for a cross country strip - lots of trunk space and I suspect an overdrive.  I’m curious about the door to the trunk behind the passenger’s side seat - was this the businessman’s hotel door? Current bid is under 7k at the moment.

It's back and has a price.  Really would be a candidate if I was looking for one.  Not alot out there and much less buys you alot of work.  Or alot more  buys you a nicer car. Seems reasonable to me.

But it now of 13800 or make offer.

almost all there" including original engine, lights, chrome, 3 of 4 hub caps, glass, steering wheel, heater, etc. Doesn't run and very rusty. Original lights are unbroken, hood ornament is present. All glass is installed but wing windows are cracked. Original body chrome is there. In some pics grill may be absent, but it is included. No running boards. Fluid drive, 3 speed manual.

The gentleman from whom I purchased this said it was his grandfather's car (1 original owner before me). He had a grocery store, and would use it to drive from the coast to town (Olympia?, Seattle?) to fill up the trunk with groceries to sell in his store.

the price will be contingent on what it will take to get it running and what it will need, once we do.

picking up a new battery tomorrow and will bust it off on wedneday.

we just got it in two weeks ago.

you know the story,"it was running when i parked it." that was in '13!

it's all there and very clean under the hood. the carb looks clean, anti-freeze in the block and oil is clean. two tone wheels!

so i think it should start right up!

"we will know this week and i will let you know.

talk soon, alan
