Nice restoration,
But I see the following that is completely wrong with the car:
The dash and window garnish molding should not be painted the color of the car. They would have been wood grained.

The steering wheel horn ring is broken missing the upper part of the ring. Also the color would not have been black it was a tan beige color and also the same with the horn button and is also missing the Desoto emblem on the plastic button.

The rear license lamp is missing the chrome piece. The one that is on the car is for the 39 Dodge and Chrylser.

The hub caps do not seemto be correct

Running board are missing the trim on the outside edge.

No picture of the engine so do not know if it the correct engine or if any modifications.

The Window cranks are not correct and missing the excuthions on the door and window handles.

So there would need to be room for some price negoiations.
