Hi Fred,
I'm currently considering the purchase of a 29-33 DeSoto to have an example of an antique car. How tight is the front seat space? I know the 29-30 DeSoto sixes don't have adjustable front seats. Are they kind of tight in the front seat? When did Desoto get adjustable front seats on their six cylinder cars?

Marc.

Hi Marc, Yes; the front seat is a bit tight. I think the people were a bit smaller back then. Once I get in the car there seems to be enough room, but, it is a bit tight getting in. I do know that my '34 Airflow does have an adjustable seat, but I do not know of the '30, '31, '32, or '33. I honestly do not feel that they would have however. The Airflow was pretty revolutionary at the time with lots of innovations. Fred

Fred,

I like that car, creamy yellow with black trim just like my '52! The Chrysler historic collection has one in that color too. Very nice!


I have read that all 1929 roadsters came with the high compression "Red Head" engine. Does yours have that?

Hi Brent,
This roadster does indeed have the higher compression "red head". I was under the impression that it was a rare option. I have not seen another '29 with it. Maybe not as rare as what I thought it was.
