GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1931 Desoto SA Custom Coupe for purchase. The DeSoto make was founded by Walter Chrysler on August 4, 1928, and introduced for the 1929 model year. It was named after the Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto. Chrysler wanted to enter the brand in competition with its arch-rivals General Motors, Studebaker, and Willys-Knight, in the mid-price class. Shortly after DeSoto was introduced, however, Chrysler completed its purchase of the Dodge Brothers, giving the company two mid-priced makes. Initially, the two-make strategy was relatively successful, with DeSoto priced below Dodge models. Despite the economic times, DeSoto sales were relatively healthy, pacing Dodge at around 25,000 units in 1932. In fact, when DeSoto first came out in 1929, it broke the first-year sales record, with 81,065 cars sold, and was not beaten until 1960 by the Ford Falcon.
This 1931 Desoto Custom “Street Rod” is a really cool and unique build that was completed just in 2011. It's powered by a 400 small block Chevy stroker V8 paired with a 700 R4 automatic transmission. It also features two ton Silver & Blue paint, a Mustang II front end, front disc brakes, working air conditioning, power windows, digital dash, and a rumble seat. This car is very quick and a very smooth ride that has a lot of curb appeal. This car will not disappoint! Please call or email for more details!
