Wow! Great video, really cool race! I basically consider myself as a "younger" (not 40 yet!) person now interested in vintage cars. This very nice black DeSoto looks very similar to mine, I know this is going to be a dumb question but what is the difference between the fireflite and the firedome? I was assuming my vehicle is a 55 firedome, but it looks just like this one that says its a fireflite?
Thanks,
Jay

Hello Jay,

The attached (hopefully) salesman training piece from '55 answers the "what's the difference" question between Firedome and Fireflite.

The brochure mentions a rear cigar lighter standard on Fireflite. Hmmm...never seen one of those.

Ron,

The rear lighter is inside the pull out ashtray on the four door. It's wired into the harness.
