Description for DeSoto FIREDOME 1955

VERY RARE 1955 DESOTO FIREDOME

5 DOORESTATE WAGON

FROM VERY DRY EL PASO, TEXAS.

ONE OF ONLY 1803 PRODUCED IN 1955 AND VERY VERY FEW EXAMPLES STILL EXIST!

MUCH MORE RARE THAN YOUR TYPICAL CHEVY, PONTIAC, OLDSMOBILE, OR NOMAD!

THIS ONE IS AS ORIGINAL AS THEY COME WITH THE FACTORY 291 HEMI MOTOR AND AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. YOU WOULD BE HARD PRESSED TO FINE ONE AS ORIGINAL AND NICE AS THIS ONE.

RUNS AND DRIVES AS SMOOTH AS SILK.LOTS OF POWER AND TORQUE.

THIS IS READY TO DRIVE AND ENJOY TODAY!

HERE IS A LINK TO DESOTO WAGON VALUES:

THEY LIST THE WAGON AS VERY RARE (VR)WITH A PERFECT VALUE OF $63,000.!!

A TRUE SURVIROR, WITH SOLID FLOORS, DOORS, AND ROCKERS, NEARLY RUST FREE WITH ONLY A FEW SMALL AREAS OF SMALL BUBBLES AND SURFACE RUST.

THE ORIGINAL OWNER WAS A PROMINENT EL PASO, TEXAS REVEREND WHO OWNED THE CAR MOST OF ITS LIFE.

NO UNDERCOATING ANYWHERE ON THE CAR; THE FLOORS ARE SUPER CLEAN WITH ONLY LIGHT SURFACE RUST. ONLY A FEW SMALL AREA WOULD REQUIRE THE MOST MINIMAL WORK.

GORGEOUS PERIODLEXINGTON GREEN IS THE OFFICIAL COLOR WITH SURF WHITE ACCENTS AND A BLACK AND WHITE INTERIOR.

GREAT OIL PRESSURE, NO OVERHEATING. SHE SMOKES A LITTLE, LIKE MOST CARS FROM THIS ERA, AND CAN EASILY BE REMEDIED, IF YOU DESIRE. ONLY REASON I HAVE NOT ADDRESSED THIS, IS BECAUSE HALF OF THE BUYERS WANT AN ORIGINAL DRIVETRAIN, AND HALF WOULD WANT TO INSTALL A MODERN CRATE ENGINE. BE GLAD TO HELP THE NEW OWNER ANY WAY I CAN.

HAS FACTORY POWER STEERING WHICH IS A NICE TOUCH WITH SUCH A LARGE CAR, OPTIONAL AM RADIO AND DASH CLOCK.

BRAND NEW $800. STEERING WHEEL AND HORN BUTTON THAT IS THE ICING ON THE CAKE FOR THE INTERIOR.

LOTS OF NEW PARTS, LIKE NEW RADIAL TIRES,STARTER,CARB,BATTERY, FUEL GAUGE AND SENDER, STEERING LINKAGE, WATER TEMP SENDE, COOLANT AND A FRESH OIL CHANGE AND FILTER.

CAR DOES NOT NEED ANYTHING TO ENJOY AND USE WITH JUST THE TURN OF A KEY! HEATER AND FAN WORKS GREAT AND BLOWS NICE AND HOT, LIGHTS WORK AS THEY SHOULD, WIPERS WORK FOR THAT RAINY DAY. CLOCK AND RADIO WILL NEED ATTENTION.

THERE ARE SOME CHIPS AND A FEW DINGS HERE AND THERE, SMALLGOLF BALLDENT TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE REAR BUMPER THAT COULD BE PUSHED BACK TO SHAPE,BUT OVERALL A VERY VERY PRESENTABLE WAGON.

LOTS OF POTENTIAL TO KEEP ALL ORIGINAL OR INSTALL OR A MONSTER CRATE MOTOR FOR A RAT ROD STYLE.

I WILL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY AND ALL QUESTIONS, SO FIRE AWAY.

CAR IS SOLD AS IS WHERE IS, AND I WILL HELP IN ANY WAY I CAN WITH TRANSPORT. SHIPPING COSTS ARE PAID BY THE BUYER.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS WELCOME!
