Here are some photos of Don and Nancy George's 1957 DeSoto Firesweep from the 2016 Ypsilanti "Orphan Car Show". It was also at the 2017 "Rolling Sculpture " show in Ann Arbor, and the 2017 Orphan show. This is a beauty that hides a few surprises.

Here is a front quarter view. Noticeable is the family resemblance between the hoodline and headlamp hoods on this car and the 1957 Dodge.

Now for the geeky folks, here is an engine shot of the George's '57 Firesweep. That is the 1957 Dodge 325 CID Polysphere engine.
