The '59 Diplomat was powered by the "Golden Commando" 5.9 litre V8 engine, but a 'small' 3.7-litre 6 cylinder was also available. The fins were impressive, but nothing compared with the 1960 models.

 

De Soto Custom ca. 1952

These pictures come from an undated brochure, but the cars are obviously early 50s, probably 1952. They are slightly different from those on the De Soto 6 page (the major difference seems to be the badge on the front - horizontal orientation on the models on this page, and vertical on the De Soto 6 models). Drop a line in the guest book if you have more details.

"Here is breathtaking proof that exciting modern design can be completely practical, for here is the most beautiful De Soto ever built ..."
