I do the Pic-A-Day posts. I try to do these once a day sharing a pictorial history of the automobile through the decades. I do these for the sake of art, not as a money making venture. These are small copies of my large original fine art images as well as some wonderful historical images from long ago. I do not get paid for this although I do offer for sale prints of my original images. There are a few museums that ask that I not sell any images taken at their locations. I respect the wish of the owners of these wonderful autos so you will note some are not for sale. I include those images here as they add to the pictorial history. I try to add some interesting information about the images. The information posted is as accurate as I can make it. I try to post the source of my information however, I don’t claim to be an expert, only a lowly artist. I appreciate comments about the posts. I also welcome comments that might make the information I post more accurate. If you click on my picture on the blog it will take you to my page where you will find contact information. I hope that the Pic-A-Day can be used by many for reference. As time goes by the value of the Pic-A-Day posts will increase. As of this time, I have enough fine art images for several years completed, ready to post when I add the informative data. I try to post these in chronological order however I have many folders of hundreds of images I have yet to work on and from time to time will add earlier vehicles.

1957 DESOTO ADVENTURER COUPE
Under the guidance of their visionary chief designer Virgil Exner, Chrysler Corporation finally broke free of their staid and conservative design language of the late 1940s and early 1950s with the influential new “Forward Look” of 1955. Chrysler began hinting at its reborn sense of style through a series of dream cars that were the product of a collaboration between Exner and Ghia’s Luigi “Gigi” Segre. The Forward Look thrust Chrysler back into the spotlight and ushered in the era of chrome, fins, and flamboyant style.
This DeSoto Adventurer is one of only 1650 coupes built for the 1957 model year. This lovely example wears an older restoration that has seen many years of regular care and maintenance in the hands of a seasoned collector. According to the trim tag, this car is a genuine Adventurer Sportsman Coupe, correctly finished in original Surf White with Adventurer Gold roof and lower body sweep.
Comprehensively restored a few years after being found. It presents in very good condition, with straight panels and factory-appropriate gaps. Chrome trim and brightwork are also in good condition, with very good bumpers and moldings showing some light polish marks from regular care. This car retains the original gold-anodized wheel covers, unique to the Adventurer. Because of their delicate nature, most get painted during restoration, so it is rare to find a set with the anodized plating intact.
Interior features factory-correct upholstery, which is specific to the Adventurer and corresponds with the trim tag. The fawn-gold seats have white accents and distinct tweed-style fabric inserts. Door panels match the chairs and feature patterned-alloy inserts that repeat on the instrument fascia. The carpets, dash top, and other interior panels are all in fine condition. Period correct “Flookerang” logo floor mats (the official symbol of The New Look) protect the carpets. The top-line Adventurer came equipped with a radio, push button transmission control, and deluxe heater, and this car adds the optional power-adjustable front seat.
