Pictures of 1957 DeSoto INTERIORS


I've been wanting for quite some time to document the correct interior materials (cloth, vinyl) and colors to match the COWL CODE from the firewall tag. This should be a valuable resource for restorers who want to know what their interior should look like! Please, if you have nice interior that YOU KNOW IS CORRECT, send me pictures of it, along with the cowl code from your car. I'll update these pages as I get more photos. And PLEASE, if you see any error in what I've posted, let me know!
