Post subject:  1959 Firesweep 4 door sedan

Dad was a DeSoto-Plymouth dealer in Beaverton, MI from 1946 till 1961 when he picked up the Chrysler line. In late 1958 he had a '59 Firedome 4 door sedan just about like my Firesweep color and all.

I saw this Firesweep advertised 3 years ago or so but refused to buy it for quite some time. The owner and my son bargained and a happy medium was struck as my son was buying it for me mainly to duplicate the one Dad had. The Firesweep was a two owner car at the time with only 21,000 miles and in near mint factory original condition with one repaint in the original colors.

Currently the car has 23,500 miles and all I have to do is maintenance. Everything is just about like new. I did add the wire wheels for a more elegant look. I enjoy this automobile immensely and certainly take pride in talking about it to others, several of whom don't know DeSotos existed.
