1932 De Soto Eight


Specifications


Description

 

Positioned between Chrysler and Plymouth, De Soto had only been a brand for four short years in 1932, a year that brought with it the financial depths of the Great Depression--a time when the budget Plymouth was a popular choice.

But the De Soto packed enough technology and style to set it apart from both its more expensive Chrysler and lower-priced Plymouth cousins.

Distinctive looks and mid-range performance defined the De Soto marque, and this example is a nice, easy car to drive.
