This DeSoto looks great, as does the similar Chrysler Windsor replica. Big, solid postwar American sedans !

@mikedetorrice  And Kager did some interesting transkits for these Desotos and Chryslers.  Here are two business coupes.  The Chrysler I modified slightly in the front clip to represent the 8 cylinder New Yorker.  I wish there were more trankits produced for diecasts, they make interesting projects to create something just a bit different.

Here's another of the Vitesse series:

And this DeSoto is a Kager Edition of the Vitesse:

   These Vitesse models were among my early 1:43 purchases, I think dating to the early 1990's.  Thanks for reminding me of them, Galen55.
