I'll take the DeSoto for styling, but love the short lived 60 Edsel. Though it had
become nothing more than a warmed over Ford, for 60 it was better looking than the Ford. The taillights on the Edsel were beautiful. Sadly this beauty was the end for Edsel.

As for DeSoto, really the 60 was just a Chrysler with the DeSoto name on it. And like Edsel, this DeSoto for 60 was on life-support and would be gone abruptly in the 61 model year.

DeSoto for looks and Edsel for rarity. (EOM) by Bob Jackman #44018.9
Talk about rarity, that DeSoto is 1 of 1! (EOM) by Barry Levittan #44018.9.1
Yes Barry, this is the one that started out as a Chrysler. (EOM) by John Bono #44018.9.1.1
DeSoto didn't offer a convertible for 1960, but I'll take that dream one over the Edsel. (EOM) by Barry Levittan #44018.10
Ditto for DeSoto. (EOM) by Al Dorado #44018.11
Forward Look style beats the Edsel offering by a mile.....but it's not a fair comparison. by David Larsen #44018.12
DeSoto, even if the one pictured is a 1 on 1, I still like the 60 DeSotos better than the Edsels! (EOM) by Duncan Pohl #44018.13
