Dave , do you have these ads in a large size?


You could get them from the The Akron Beacon Journal newspaper's internet site but required signing up for something. Might be free:

Queen's Chronicle Newspaper article:

" James F. Waters was an early West Coast automobile dealer in San Francisco who decided to expand his operations and enter the New York City marketplace. In 1935, he started a business in Manhattan, with seven-passenger DeSoto automobiles converted into taxicabs complete with the Chrysler Corp. warranty.

The city passed regulations in 1929 dictating any vehicle used for livery or taxi cab service must be able to carry five passengers in the rear and jump seats. Only Checker, DeSoto and Packard manufactured vehicles that size to meet these requirements.

On June 1, 1940, Waters leased an entire block in Long Island City at 34th Street and 47th Avenue for the DeSoto taxicab operation. All across the city, people saw the vehicles, which had a retractable roof with a molded globe that read DeSoto Sky View.

In 1953, the DeSoto Retailer magazine bragged that seven out of 10 cabs in the city belonged to the company. The vehicles each had an 18-foot-long, eight-passenger body with a six-cylinder engine, manual transmission and 139.5-inch wheelbase.

The end came fast, shortly after Mayor Wagner came into office and the city outlawed the widely used, long wheelbase and set a new maximum of only 120 inches. Ford and Chevrolet were now allowed to enter New York City’s lucrative marketplace.

In 1955 the Waters cabs ended their reign and his Long Island City operation closed. It quickly vanished and the city soon saw Ford, Plymouth and Chevy cabs everywhere."

Two other restrictions on the New York cabs of that era -

Trunk was sealed. Some writers have said that was due to restrictions on alcohol during prohibition.

The front seat had just a seat for the driver, with a platform where the front passengers would have been. The platform was for the luggage, etc. that normally would have gone in the trunk.

Chrysler had finalized work on a LWB 1955 DeSoto cab - body was to be shared with the Crown Imperial, as in past years. The Engineering people even declared the first serial number for the 1955 DeSoto S22 Taxi. The 1954 DeSoto Taxi S20, 139½" wheelbase, saw production of 2,005 units.

But the announcement from New York City to cancel the LWB cabs caused Chrysler and Checker to end production. Checker closed their plant for almost two years as they worked on developing a new cab on a 120" wheelbase, which was ready to go in 1956. And lasted to the end of production in 1981. Packard abandoned the LWB taxi field in 1948. GM was involved briefly in the late 1930's by taking a Chevrolet sedan and extending the body. It was sold as the General Cab.

DeSoto would go back to the taxi business in January, 1957, with the introduction of the DeSoto Firesweep cab with a Dodge Coronet flathead six in the Firesweep body. With the introduction of the DeSoto Firesweep taxi, the engine serial number prefix changed from D72- to KDS6-. A total of 139 6 cylinder taxis were built for 1957. DeSoto announced the taxi based on a 6 cylinder Firesweep in 1958 and 1959, but no production numbers are known.

George Byers and Sons is still doing business in Columbus. They no longer sell Plymouths or De Sotos, but they sell Chrysler, Dodge, RAM trucks, and Jeeps. They also sell a wide range of world cars as well, such as VW, Porche, Jaguar, Mazda, Kia, etc. 

During the 60s and 70s they had a lock on the fleet of taxicabs that worked out of Columbus. United Transportation, a firm that I worked for when I was in college, had fleets of 1968 Plymouth Fury I and 1972 Plymouth Fury I cabs which they had contracted with George Byers to provide.

This photo is of Victoria Dodge DeSoto, 1061 Yates Street, Victoria, BC Canada. My hometown, I still live here.
In 1961 this dealer became Pacific Chrysler and in 1963 became Ensign Chrysler Plymouth.
Several years ago it became Harris Victoria Dodge Chrysler Jeep. (bottom photo). It's now slated to be torn down for redevelopment.

My 300F came from Roy Burnett Motors in Portland, Oregon. The building is still there as the headquarters for Pendleton Woolen Mills. My 1960 New Yorker Town & Country came from Max Barish Inc. at 4th and La Brea in Los Angeles. That building is gone and I couldn't find much info on the dealership.

Here is the history I put together on Roy Burnett, Inc. - https://www.300f.com/8403150442_burnett.htm

My DeSoto is from the Hub Motor Co. in Lubbock, TX. Does anyone have any information on it? Thank you!

Carolyn: I real quick look turned up:

https://desoto.org/community/discussion/1955-desoto-fireflite-red-an...

Hub Motor certainly advertised the 1955 Desoto a lot:





Looks like they were at 901 Avenue H in Lubbock. I think Avenue H got renamed to Buddy (all of my love, all of my kisses) Holly Avenue. Here is what 901 looks like now:
