FLAP 1942 DeSoto coupe blackout

You'll probably never see three war-time 1942 De Sotos in one place, unless you go to FLAP. The green 1942 DeSoto business coupe is a black-out model with a painted grille and trim while the 1942 De Soto club coupe is an earlier production model with plated bright work. Both are uber rare, and there's a third 1942 DeSoto sedan nearby that is straighter and more solid, as well as a 1942 Chrysler coupe.
