The '61 Desoto that I am restoring has a bunch of undercoating on the bottom of the car as well as on the wheel side of the front inner fenders. I think it likely that the local Desoto dealership may have sprayed some of this stuff back in the day. The undercoating is not only on the exterior however. The stuff is sprayed heavily on the the interior floors. It is also sprayed on the inside of the rear quarter panels. I just wondered if this was a practice that the factory did when the car was being produced. I feel sure that it had to be applied then as the carpets that I took out of the car were the original. I am freshening up this undercoat where it is found. Interesting. Mike

Undercoating was a factory option on the 1961 DeSotos. The order information indicates that the underhood pad was included as part of this option.
