This 57 Desoto popped up on my feed the other day. It was my day off so I sent a message to the owner about it, figuring it was sold. A few hours later I got a response, so I took off for a 3hr ride to the snowy side of the state. Nice guy, said he was packing up his body shop and family heading for the warmer temps of the lone star state. Story goes he did some work for a gentleman who had some cars, the 57 being one of them. Being a Chevy guy he picked up several GMs , but the old desoto spoke to him. The owner quit driving the 57 in 1974. His house burned to the ground in 1978, along with all the titles. Fast forward the owner goes to the mvd to get duplicate titles, seems the cars haven't been registered in so long they dropped out of the system. I looked the car over, and it needs some typical metal repair, but is complete with a 325 poly. I'll go get the car after the snow melts , not sure of its direction yet.
