De Soto Adventurer
First, most people don’t know about the De Soto brand. But this is understandable since they discontinued this make in 1961. However, it was an exciting brand with different trims, powerful engines, and affordable prices. Conversely, however, this wasn’t enough. Every model year was worse than the one before it as a result. One of the better models from the period was the Adventurer. It was a cool-looking mid-size model with V8 power and an attractive design (via Auto Evolution).
Unfortunately, the good looks and strong engines just weren’t enough. Chrysler lost their patience and shut down the production of the De Soto in 1961 because of its poor sales. Today; De Soto models are collector items due to their rarity and history.
