With both brands discontinued many decades ago, their cars are getting increasingly harder to find. Phased out in 1961, DeSoto is becoming a rare sight, even in junkyards. I've seen at least four of them in the video below, including a late 1950s four-door and a 1955 coupe.
Introduced in 1955 as Chrysler's luxury division, Imperial survived until 1983, but its early models are also hard to find nowadays. The oldest I've seen here is a 1959 model year. And it's quite the long four-door, similar to the Crown limousines the company offered in its first 10 years on the market.
There's also a 1967 version, most likely powered by the big 440-cubic-inch (7.2-liter) Wedge V8 and a 1961 example with the iconic "free-standing" headlamps. The latter is actually in good condition, perhaps ready to hit the road with a mild restoration.
Since we're talking about luxury cars, this junkyard is also home to quite a few Chrysler 300 "letter cars," including C, D, and F models. You'll spot a couple of them at the 26:43-minute mark, tucked away from the elements. These two appear to be in decent condition.
But there are a few more goodies worth mentioning, including a 1950s Dodge Coronet police car, a pack of Plymouth Savoys and Valiants, and a few Fury models. Plenty of options here if you want to build yourself a "Christine" tribute.
There's also an original 1965 Satellite survivor, a 1961 Belvedere (a better option to the Chevrolet Impala if you ask me), and a couple of Dodge A100 vans. These compact haulers aren't incredibly rare, but you don't see them very often either.
But as you'll see for yourself, this junkyard also includes a few Chevrolets, Pontiacs, and Fords, as well as a very lonely Porsche 928. Hopefully, it will find a new home during one of the junkyard's upcoming auctions because these grand tourers are too cool to meet the crusher.
