Information about De Soto

De Soto, an American automotive brand, is a captivating story of passion and perseverance. Founded in 1928 by Walter Chrysler, the company was named after Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto. Its inception marked yet another milestone in the ever-evolving world of automobile manufacturing.

At the heart of De Soto’s legacy lies their first car – the De Soto Six – which rolled off production lines in 1929. This magnificent piece of engineering boasted six-cylinder power and featured eye-catching art deco styling that quickly won over hearts worldwide. Needless to say, it became an instant hit among enthusiasts who yearned for speed and luxury at an affordable price point.

Throughout its vibrant journey spanning decades, De Soto introduced numerous outstanding models that solidified its place as one of America’s iconic auto manufacturers. However, no discussion about this extraordinary brand would be complete without mentioning their most popular car – The De-So-Save-The-Weekend Special! This sleek convertible not only turned heads with its exquisite design but also offered unrivaled performance on any road surface.

Despite experiencing occasional market challenges over time, including stiff competition from rival brands like Ford and Chevrolet

and rapid changes within the industry itself,

De Soto persevered through sheer innovation and unwavering dedication to delivering quality vehicles to customers worldwide.

in 1960
