I was sitting outside in a Bier Garden enjoying a GREAT Reggae band and someone came up to me and asked in that was my "Chrysler wagon".
When I said sorta "yes", he gave me this and was gone.

I am thinking this is/was a Band or Club jacket patch? Anyone have any idea what this is?

Obviously something to do with the 1961 DeSoto but I can’t pinpoint what exactly it might be.

When dad (a DeSoto-Plymouth dealer) sponsored a bowling team, he had bowling shirt sew-on patches with his DeSoto-Plymouth logo.
Not saying that is what this is but reminds of that.

As Viper Guy said, it seems to have been inspired by the 1961 De Soto - at least looking at the back. Could have been run up as a car club jacket patch or maybe an obscure garage band called themselves The De Sotos. No way to tell. I doubt it was issued by Chrysler Corporation as it doesn't look that old and anway, Chrysler had decided to pull the De Soto out of the line up pretty early; production of new 1961 De Sotos ended on 30 November 1960. Cool memento though.

No idea what that is for, but I like the idea of it being a team patch for a bowling team!

The '61 Desoto was an obscure car with very few fans until just a couple of years ago. I'm guessing someone had one and had that made. I looked across the internet for something, but didn't find this logo. Found a couple of bands/restaurants/bars.
