1957 DeSoto Adventurer description

Call it a barn find, but for no barn. This 1957 Adventurer was found in the high desert of California where it lived its life. The sun, and a couple of bullet holes,have taken their toll. But the dry environs mean the floors,trunk, and rockers are solid with no rust-through. It is an excellent candidate for restoration or resto-mod.
The first owner sold the engine long ago, but the original Torqueflite transmission is still in place. The rear bumper (removed) didn't make the photos, but is included. The gold-colored wheelcoversunique to the Adventurer are dented, but come with the car. This car has power windows and power front seat.
This survivor is one of only 1,950 Adventurers built in1957. Restored with its original 345hp dual quad hemi V8, the 57 Adventurer is the most sought-after of the finned-era DeSotos.
Collector car folks always say to buy cars from the western desert. Here's your opportunity!

Here are answers to a couple questions I've received. * I do not have the original steering wheel * The original engine is long gone. The first owner told me he sold it to a hotrodder and it was blown up decades ago. * The license plate frame is the original from where the car was first sold.
