DeSoto was fully redesigned for 1949, as were other Chrysler makes. However, postwar styling was dull compared to GM and Ford. Styling was boxy and upright make the 1949 cars shorter looking. The lady hood ornament was replace by bust of Hernando DeSoto. Postwar inflation was affecting car prices all over including Desoto. In 1949 The DeSoto Motor Corporation produced a $3,000.00 woody wagon that had an all steel body. The Suburban was up over $500.00. Overall, 1949 was less than spectacular with volume at about 92,500 units. Sales of the S-13-2 Custom out performed the S-11S DeLuxe which was a sign that for 1950 the consumer wanted greater luxury.

Eleu beautiful image.
The color combination looks good and harmonious composition is well done. Perfect sharpness and lighting.

Hello Eleu,

My father-in-law had a green one like this. He kept it late in the fifty's. I sometimes drove it when he was tired. Very nice shot here with the modern plane. Thanks for the souvenir.

Best regards

Hi Eleu,
A superb capture of this vintage Chrysler car with its metallic blue paint cintrasting wonderfully against the yellow and the white.
An interesting low POV to let admire wholly the vehicle.
Very neat work.
