Hey Kid, look on www.traderonline.com, once you get there go into classics and type that year in, look to see if you can find some pictures. Thats about all I can tell you.

Hey HBK, I'm rebuilding a 38 DeSoto. Why do you need a picture if there's one in front of you? Is it missing a lot of parts? Is it 2 door or four door, or convert, or coop? Need more input. Tell me more.

Gr8 48 I use to go to the chicken coop lots of times for granny when I was a kid. Was my job to catch 'em while they made them extinct, boiled them and then I had to help pluck 'em. The good ole days when dad got to pay all the bills.

Yep me too been there done that for many years. The only difference was it was my mother STRUGGLING to pay the bills. I don't remember my father. No one has a photo of him because he would burn them if anyone were to sneek a shot of him. He passed away when I was five years old [57 years ago]. Anyway I decapited many chickens.

Nawwww! I wasn't a chicken rancher, just a chicken plucker. ( that's spelled with a pl Madd) For 2 summers I worked as a chicken plucker while in high school. Drove a pretty little red corvair convertible. Lot of fun to drive. Chicken plucking was awful but gave me some spending money for gas and to chase girls at the time.

The national web site for DeSoto is here in Ohio at Piqua. Try www.DeSoto.org It would be all original stuff though if that helps you any.
