1960 Desoto Adventurer

Car History

The DeSoto Adventurer was an automobile that was produced by DeSoto from 1956 through the 1960 model year. The Adventurer name first started out a four-seat high performance sports coupe concept car, but then was changed to be DeSoto's special, limited-production, high-performance model similar to the Chrysler 300.

Our 1960 DeSoto Adventurer we have here at Adventure Classics is not only rare but is restored with over $30K in receipts and took about 5 years of meticulous professional work too.

Engine & Drivetrain

The Desoto has an original balanced & dynode Mopar 383 cubic inch engine showing over 300 horsepower with its 10.1 compression ratio, and backed by a Push Button Torqueflight automatic transmission and was rebuilt and updated and includes many upgraded performance parts like the Holly Sniper EFI Fuel injection Hyperspark #550-511, MSD distributor, American Auto Power Plus wiring Harness, 4-barrel Edelbrock Intake, Mopar Heavy duty water pump, 95 Amp Power Master Alternator, GEN IV Vintage A/C system with new style Compressor and R134a refrigerant, black DeSoto valve covers, chrome open-air cleaner assembly, cast iron exhaust headers, dual exhaust, and performance spark plug wire set.

Other important changes include dual electric fans, 3-core Mopar radiator, power steering, new style Mopar brake booster and master cylinder, front Disc Brakes and new rear brake drums, bearings, and shoes, new style washer pump and reservoir, rebuilt original "S" type rear end, new gas tank, and rides on 17” chrome 5-spoke mag wheels with a matching spare and blackwall performance tires.

Interior

The all new interior features front and rear matching bench seats wrapped in original red and white vinyl upholstery, all new carpets including matching floormats, new seat belts, new headliner, an AM/FM/CD stereo radio system with dual 200 watt USB, Bluetooth, and all new speakers.

And oh what a dash! Gauges, lights, factory sport steering wheel, push buttons, gleaming chrome, with gold, red, and black colors everywhere, it really looks amazing.

Exterior

This is a very rare car made by Chrysler with only 3092 every made and it only had about 50,000 original miles before restoration. It has a deep black paint job with the white painted top contrasting it, a gold trim package and chrome trim on the flanks and the long iconic side fins, great chrome bumpers, dual exterior mirrors, and dual power radio antennas. It really makes a statement.

Conclusion

The 1960 Desoto Adventurer we have here at Adventure Classics is a fully restored sweetheart of a vehicle. This project has just been completed and is in mint condition, runs and drives superb and can be yours today.
