It was the end of the era when the last 600 wood-bodied station wagons were produced for DeSoto in the 1950 model year. Even in its last year, they continued to reign as the most expensive model in the marques line-up, over $1,000 more than a comparable model from Ford or Chevrolet.This DeSoto Custom Station Wagon was treated to a full cosmetic restoration several years ago. It was repainted in its original Andante Green metallic, which complements the golden oak and mahogany wood grains. Close inspection reveals the talents and craftsmanship that went into the creation of this rolling work of art. From the clear amber plastic replica of the famed explorer for whom the car is named, to the fit and finish of the doors and rear gate, you will marvel at the skill of those who assembled this vehicle.
