Re: Are all '57-58 Desotos...

I agree, keep looking. When I finally moved to AZ, I got serious about finding a 57 or 58 Plymouth. (My folks had a 57 when I was a kid). Went on a lot of wild goose chases, and mostly came up empty handed. One day, I found a pretty nice and complete 57 Dodge 2dr Post in a wrecking yard in Tucson and bought it, I figured that was as close to what I wanted as I would get. You guessed it, within 2 months of getting the Dodge, my 57 Plymouth came along, in roughly the same shape, and $50 cheaper than the Dodge. It had been for sale the whole time I was looking and was within 30 miles from me. Within a year after finding my Plymouth, I came across 3 or 4 more that I would have bought if I didn't already have the one I'm building. In the long run the Dodge was built, driven, and sold, because it wasn't what I really wanted in the first place. Good luck.
