HIGHLIGHTS: One of just 646 produced for 1956! Rotisserie restored!
Gorgeous color combination! Recently released from a private
collection, this beautiful 1956 DeSoto Firedome is perfect for any
Forward Look Mopar collector wanting to bolster their
BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this DeSoto is straight and beautiful!
With Mopar products of this era being known for "radical" styling,
putting one together like this is key to highlight all the styling
elements. With sweeping body lines like this, what's not to love?
This is a show-quality vehicle ready for a new home.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: One look up close tells you everything
you need to know! There is no doubt this DeSoto received a
top-notch restoration. The paint is slick with a deep gloss, and
really highlights the body underneath. A dark gray color like this
is sure to highlight any body imperfections, and one look down the
side is very telling of this car's excellent condition. Now painted
in Rolls-Royce colors and equipped with dual antennas, and chrome
wire-spoke wheels wrapped in whitewall tires, it's no wonder this
car looks so regal!
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Much like the exterior of this car,
the interior is in beautiful condition showing extremely minimal
signs of use. The red seating color is not original, but the gray
tweed inserts are NOS. The bright red and gray interior is a lovely
complement to the dark exterior color, and with the top down this
car's true beauty really shows. This DeSoto is one classy lady!
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood sits a 330 Hemi, the classic
choice for a Forward Look Mopar. The Hemi runs smoothly, sounds
great, and the push-button automatic transmission really completes
the full Chrysler experience. This gorgeous specimen is ready for
top-down cruising to any show!
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: With radical body styling, a
gorgeous color combination, and a purely classic look only Chrysler
could achieve, what's not to love?
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you're a stickler for
originality, this car may not be for you.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This DeSoto needs a few tweaks, as the
speedometer cable is damaged, and the temperature gauge and radio
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Any Mopar collector, or anyone
