Vehicle Description

This 1956 DeSoto Firedome Wagon is finished in two-tone Light Aqua and white and is powered by a 330ci Hemi V8.  Service was overseen by Chris Campbell of The Vintage Connection, where over $10k was spent on restoring the interior with a reconditioned plywood floor and new headliner, carpet, and door panels. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 2-speed pushbutton automatic transmission,  repainted the two-tone Light Aqua and white exterior, which was designed by Virgil Exner as part of the “Forward Look” era for DeSoto. The bumpers, emblems, and trim pieces were reportedly replated by the previous owner, and the rear and side windows are also said to have been replaced. 15? white-wall tires are mounted on body-color wheels with chrome DeSoto hubcaps.
