El Conquistador

El Conquistador

One of the 5 most brutal conquistadors, Hernando de Soto led 600 men on an exploration of what is now the southeastern United States. They were the first Europeans to cross the Mississippi in 1541. He died of a fever on the banks of the mighty miss in 1542. Not only did he lay waste to Peru but also about 6,000 members of the Mobilian tribe in Alabama – one of the bloodiest battles of North American history. If the Chrysler/De Soto automobile was still around, and if hood ornaments had not been outlawed, I doubt if a hood ornament named conquistador would survive.

This De Soto is a 1950 suburban with fluid drive.
