1959 DeSoto Adventurer Convertible

One of 97 convertibles made. Powered by a high-performance 383 CI V8 engine offering 350 HP with dual Carter AFB 4-barrel carburetors in tandem with a push­-button operated TorqueFlite automatic transmission, this Adventurer has a dizzying array of features including power brakes, power steering, power windows, a power-operated and swiveling driver’s bucket seat, and a power-operated convertible top. An AM radio, clock, padded dash and unique Adventurer-specific upholstery round out the interior package. The exterior is complemented by a set of virtually impossible-to-find Adventurer wheel covers with unique bullet-shaped centers, as well as gold emblems, model identification scripts and trim components.
