About 1970 , Dianne's father worked for Kens Panelbeating ( the truck ) and part of the job was accident/breakdown recovery and this was an on the job photo taken ( in all probability ) because of the car on the trailer . Di's Dad is long gone and no-one can remember what the car was .

The one being towed...?
Looks like a '57 Chevvy Bel Air to me - but I stand to be corrected!

I think you're spot on with DeSoto
My guess would be a '58 Diplomat 4 door sedan.

Notice the quad headlights, tiny front quarterlight and thick pillar between the rear door and c-pillar window.
