  1. De Soto the only mark of the group was Chrysler that didn't survive (except to Plymouth), but for something Chrysler did create it and later it did dissolve it???<!-- Signature -->

    Don't really know...

    some interesting facts tho:

    they held the record for most cars produced in a single year within the chrysler/pontiac group for 30 years..

    and the 1957 desoto adventurer was the first US car ever to have 1 hp for every cubic inch of engine capacity.

    cease production in 61.

    i reckon you could customise it a bit, and make it look like an old mafia car

    Desoto was a division of Chrysler

    they made taxis and passenger cars up intil 1961

    when very poor sales killed the name

    which is a shame cos they built some nice cars

    the Firedome (early hemi) V8

    the FireFlite , FireSweep

    the bees kness in the 50's
