@ptc Both were made by Brooklin---the Adventurer (BRK 82) was available from 2000 to 2006, and the Chrysler 300E (BRK 41) from 1993 to 2000.  The Chrysler was also available later in red and in black with a tan raised convertible top.

Good looking DeSotos, Moe.  (I wonder what the correct plural of "DeSoto" is!)   Yours reminded me to look at and then take down this one:

One more quick shot, using our fading evening sunshine to get a better view of the gold:

@rick-thompson  Keep in mind that the black 1959 Desoto Adventurer was also done by Western Models long ago.  Here is one I converted from a kit into a four door hardtop shown with other Mopar 1959 4 door hardtops.
