      Vynil33rpm, Cool.

      My momma also had two sisters.

      Dunno if this is right or not:


      The 1959 DeSoto station wagon was built to haul in style!

      By 1959, the handwriting, so to speak, was on the wall. The end was near for DeSoto, a brand that, for some time, garnered significant sales for parent Chrysler Corporation in the upper-middle class segment of the automotive market.

      As famed automotive historian and author John A. Gunnell stated in the Standard Catalog of American Cars, "If any car seemed destined to be a winner, it was DeSoto."

      In its first year of production (1929), DeSoto deliveries of 81,065 beat out previous first-year sales records set by Chrysler (1924), Pontiac (1926) and Graham-Paige (1928). And DeSoto would hold that record for nearly three decades!

      The folks depicted in this magazine ad from 1959 were no doubt oblivious to the coming demise of the DeSoto. The foremost thing on their mind was transporting their pack of five Dalmations to who knows where ... perhaps the Westminster Kennel Club show? Mopar’s ‘madmen’ picked up on the canine tie-in when they headlined the ad "Best of Show ... and Go!" Taking the theme a step farther, they went on to say the lines were "purebred," the performance "spirited" and its rating was "best of show."

      The canine members of the family no doubt enjoyed the roll down back window, which allowed for plenty of fresh air circulation. This roomy wagon is decked out in Pearl White and Sunshine Yellow (the barn was painted in Sherwin-Williams "barn red"). The decorative trim along the side of the car, also trimmed in Pearl White, is known as a "Sweepspear," a commonly used styling cue of the '50s. Powering the 3,980 pound, nine-passenger wagon was a 361 cubic inch (that’s 5.9 liters for the Gen-Xers and above) V-8 producing 295 horsepower. The dog fanciers in this picture would have spent $3,500 for the privilege of ownership, plus options, taxes, delivery, etc. Figure roughly five grand to be on the safe side.

      Production totaled 45,724 units for the 30th anniversary DeSoto. Of these, 2,937 were station wagons. DeSotos were built in Detroit and Los Angeles.



      Turns out Glasbake was created in 1917 by McKee Glass Company to compete with Pyrex.

      The spelling was originally “Glasbak” for “Glasbak Ware” but was changed somewhere in the first few years putting the name change somewhere between 1918 and the early 1920’s.

      According to a very informative blog on the subject, C. Dianne Zweig, she says that Glasbake went through a few incarnations. It started as “Glasbak Ware” from 1917 to somewhere in the early 1920’s, to “Glasbake” until 1953.

      It was then changed to “Glasbake by McKee Division of Thatcher Glass Corp.” from 1951 to 1961 and finally “Glasbake by Jeannette Glass” from 1961 to 1983. As a side note, Jeannette was not a person’s name but the name of a town. Jeannette, Pennsylvania was where Jeannette Glass was located. You can tell the age of your Glasbake … if it has a “J” pre-fix to the numbers, the “J” denotes Jeannette Glass Co. and puts the age of the piece after 1961.

      bobby725, Woo hoo!

      Yeah, even though we don't have a complete, unobstructed picture of the vehicle in this post, I think you nailed it. That raised pattern on the roof is pretty distinctive. :-)
