Abandoned Car of the Week

DeSoto was a mid-level brand built by Chrysler from 1928 through 1961 with over 2 million sold in its 56 years of existence. In 1934 DeSoto was given the dramatic Chrysler airflow design, a big mistake because sales tanked in 1934-35. In 1936 the DeSoto was returned to a more mainstream design called Airstream. This 1937 DeSoto specimen was discovered by Peter Hubbard near Denton, Texas.


This large 1970 Ford Thunderbird was spotted in a South Carolina salvage yard by Ralph Gable. The four-door Thunderbird stretched out 215 inches with a wheelbase of 117.2 inches. Curb weight was 4,464 pounds. The standard engine was a 429 V-8 making 360 horsepower mated to a 3-speed automatic transmission. Notice this fifth-generation model used suicide doors.
