1930 De Soto


A member of our club has the chance to buy a 30 De S. It has had a 60's or early 70's resto. Absolutley rust free, runs and drives well. It's a 4 door sedan. Is this car too valuble to cut up. He wants to make a rod out of it. Could he make enough money selling the drive train, wood spoke wheels, etc. to make a substantial contribution to his rod build up. I don't know what he'd have to pay for it, he said cheap. If I found a 30's driver that "cheap" I'd be driving it till the market turned up some, have my fun, and then sell it for a better rod project. What do you guy's think, Joe.

z I agree George. Ive got the question out on several sites. I was thinking most of our old Hemi's are in one sort of rod or another, he might get some insight from real rod guys. I value your opinions highly. He was thinking modern LA 318 and I was gonna push for old school Hemi, if he decides to go through with it. Thanks all, Joe.

As far as roddin it, yes! A Hemi or a 318 would be cool! One of my Hemis is in a '48 Plym.
