Your father’s Suburban


1948 DeSoto Suburban

DeSoto built the long wheel based Suburban from 1946 through 1954.

This particular Suburban was purchased new in Connecticut and used by the Mount Washington Hotel of Bretton Woods, NH.

The car had several variations over it’s nine year run. I do like the suicide doors.

Complete with third row seating.

This particular DeSoto is powered by a 236ci Flathead straight six, coupled to DeSoto’s Tip-Toe Shift, which was their version of the semi-automatic transmission.
