Hi Marc, Upholstery was done by JT Upholstery which is a small shop here in central MN. I believe he still has the patterns for door panels, kick panels etc. His phone number is 320-293-6190. His email is email@example.com.
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?
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
