DeSoto Diecast Cars

DeSoto Diecast Cars

The DeSoto car was an American-manufactured vehicle produced and manufactured by Chrysler between the 1920s and 1960s, when the DeSoto marque was discontinued. Named for the famed explorer Hernando de Soto and marketed during their time as more affordable alternatives to competing manufacturer vehicles, many of the DeSoto models quickly became iconic for their eras. Despite the fact that the vehicle models have long since been discontinued, the cars and diecast models are very popular with collectors.

DeSoto Diecast Vehicle Brands

Many brands of scale models and car collectables manufacture DeSoto diecast vehicles. The most popular of these includes Brooklin, which is one of the largest manufacturers of 1:43 scale miniature models. Other brands include Dinky, Vitesse, Yat Ming and Johnny Lightning, which also manufacture full suites of diecast DeSoto vehicles.

DeSoto Diecast Vehicle Details

Though older diecast techniques for DeSoto cars limited the amount of detail in early models, contemporary DeSoto diecast cars feature immense levels of detail. These include operable steering wheels, fully-realised simulations of the original interior and immaculately-recreated finishes and imprints, opening doors and hoods, well-simulated engines, internal components and more.

Collectable DeSoto Diecast Vehicles

Though many DeSoto diecast vehicles come out of the box without accessories, there are many collectable variations that have been kept in mint-condition packaging or were manufactured as special editions to celebrate specific events. Some antique iterations were manufactured to commemorate the release of new lines or to commemorate decade memorials of specific years and models of DeSoto.

DeSoto Diecast Vehicle Manufacturing Methods

All diecast vehicles are manufactured using specially designed, reusable moulds into which molten metal is poured. The most popular diecast car models are manufactured using white metal. DeSoto white metal diecast cars are lighter and preserve more detail than steel or cast iron models, and also resist rust, corrosion and other time-related defects.
