Simple polarity in the voltage regulator, and just like the reverse thread lug nuts, it was believed to be better.

It was supposed to reduce rust like on a ship. 
 
Of course, in 1955, that proved not to work well.

The British used it for a long time, however.

Post pics!

Is the DeS an L head 6 or a V8?

51s were flattie 6, 276 hemi was  optional for 52 and most 53s had hemi.

52s had b/u light as part of the tail-light, 51s were separate.

52s had DESOTO  in block letters on the hood

53s had curved windshield, 51/2 were 2 piece divided.



Ah yes...Joseph Lucas: The Prince Of Darkness.

Or, why do the Brits drink warm beer?

They have Lucas Refrigerators!

Can you imagine the nightmare of the Lucas Fuel Injection on the mid 70s Jag V-12s?

That is truly scary to contemplate.



All this said, the Lucas electric problems on all my Brit cars over the
years almost always were due to bad grounds or corroded bayonet
connections. Easy to fix with a little Preventive Maintanance.

Hi Simca,

Firstly I want to know why are you want to buy that car, many more car is available is industry and all that car is affordable and all of that worthwhile for you because ford , Volvo and many Honda cars is luxury and have great  pickup and mileage with . I would like you to suggest that try another car.

All the best!
