This 1956 DeSoto Firedome 4 door sedan will be up for sale soon. It is a 53K mile factory original with one poor repaint done many moons ago. Everything else is fantastic for being factory original - super solid with very little rust on the lower rear quarters and right rocker near the rear tire. More pics to come. Engine runs great and purrs like a kitten from a gas can through the factory mechanical fuel pump but the trans and fuel tank will be next on the agenda to be checked out as the car has been sitting for an unknown period of time. The interior is fantastic for being original including the carpeting, headliner, visors, vinyl seats (if you can believe that with no wear, splits, or separations front and rear), package tray, scuff plates, and kick panels. The matching tires, including the spare that's never been on the ground, are old Coker 7.60 x 15 WSW. All exterior moldings are present but some have minor dings here and there. The driver's door has a minor dent and the upper molding is dented along with it but is present and in place. Front and rear bumpers are rechromed. Factory trunk mat and cardboard liners are present but rough. Lights and horn work. All glass is very good to excellent and not cloudy anywhere.

Smitty plans on putting it on eBay when finished for around the $7K mark but will consider offers from interested parties on this forum and the Forwardlook forum anytime.

Please call me 816-590-3685 or PM me.

Not enough time to finish - still needs the brakes installed (have all the parts and the new master cylinder is installed), will need the fuel tank checked to see if it does need attention for old gas and possible cleaning, the rest is as you see it in the pics. 53000 miles, all original, very little rust - some bubbling on the lower rear quarters and RR rocker panel. Rechromed bumpers front and rear. Will need paint as the paint on the car is old and was not a very good repaint whenever it was done. Still has the original interior, headliner and visors, package shelf, trunk mat and liners. Tires look about like new but are very old bias ply. Smitty just needs it gone as there are too many projects to be concerned with.

Will take $5500 as is. Please call or email with questions: 816-590-3685 or fierofred@sbcglobal.net. Can send more pics - just let me know if there is anything specific.

Car is available again from the person that bought it from Smitty. He had the fuel system flushed and cleaned and is like new. Brakes are still not working though and they will need attention. Otherwise it's in the same condition as it was when he bought it about 6 months ago. Runs, drives, shifts, but only stops with the ebrake. Located in Springfield, MO.

Call Robert at 417-838-4967 if interested. I believe he is asking $6500 negotiable?
