I just brought home a 1940 Desoto Coupe I purchased a few months back and looking to get started on the project. The car is pretty much rust free and unmolested with pretty much all there. Engine turns freely but havent attempted to start. Ive been following some 40 PLymouth builds here on the HAMB but havent seen much 40 desotos I was wondering of the dimenstions an a plymouth as far as rear end width front end etc the same as the 40 PLymouths. Ive found SlmLrd's 40 plymouth build thread pretty inspirational but as I further examine the car Im surprised how straight, complete and rust free the car is for a 73 year old car. Not sure if there is a market for a completely original 40 desoto coupe. Now im thinking of selling it to someone interested in an original and getting my hands on another project 36-40 coupe. Had neighbor that says he knows some about Mopars and is begging me not to molest the car since they only made about 3,000 of this model and not many left unmolosted. Any recommendations as to where I can get more info on the car would be helpful. If I decide to keep it the first think I wanna tackle is the front and rear end. Would eventually like to get airbags on it a V8 and OD tranny. Any advise/help would be appreciated.
