desoto1reThrough the years, Autos for Life has received a huge variety of vehicle donations, including classic and luxury cars, trucks, SUVs, minivans, family cars, boats, jet skis, and motorcycles. We at National Right to Life are so grateful for each of these special gifts. Please keep them coming! The generosity of our supporters is truly fantastic!

Some time ago, a long-time supporter in Illinois who had donated two classic cars to us previously, contacted us about donating his restored 1932 DeSoto SA. Yes, 1932! WOW!

You see, because of his age, he was moving from his house to an assisted living facility and wanted the car to go to benefit the pro-life cause. Very noble indeed! He had owned this car for well over 40 years, and had restored it top to bottom and inside out. The car never saw bad weather, was always garaged, and was only driven on nice days and in parades, etc…

desoto3Since our headquarters are in Washington D.C., and the car was in Illinois, it was shipped here by container truck. Once here, it was treated to a carburetor and fuel pump rebuild, as well as new spark plugs and general upkeep. The car runs and drives well, and is a stunningly beautiful piece of American history!

Well, as is the case with all donated vehicles, it’s time to sell it, and we figured that we would give you, our loyal supporters, the first opportunity to own this beautiful automobile before we offer it for sale publicly. This is a chance to own a fully restored, turnkey classic car, and remember that 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this 1932 DeSoto go to benefit the life saving educational work of National Right to Life Foundation.

If you or anyone that you know is interested or has any questions regarding this 1932 DeSoto, or to donate a vehicle yourself, please contact David N. O’Steen Jr. at (240) 418-8860 (cell), (202) 626-8823 (office), or by email at I know that the gentleman that donated this magnificent automobile to National Right to Life would be delighted to have his car go to another pro-life supporter!
