1949

The 1949 DeSoto had a small tail light placed on the rounded rear fender that looked a lot like a tail fin. The fin was small and like other manufacturers it should have been a start that resulted in larger and larger tail fins. However, it wasn't until the 1953 Desoto did any tail fin appear.

The 1949 line consisted of large DeSoto Custom and DeSoto Deluxe models. Body styles included sedans, club coupes, convertibles and a limo. DeSoto's were equipped with 109 horsepower six cylinder engines.
