1955 DeSoto Firedome

This is a very nice original, complete and very restorable 1995 DeSoto Firedome sedan. The body is very straight, has very minimal rust as do the floorboards. It has great patina if that is your thing or it could very easily be painted. It does have the typical lower MOPAR rust in the lower quarters but it's nothing major at all. Virtually all of the chrome is in very good to excellent condition and would not need much work at all. As far as I know, this has been a California/Nevada car all of its life and I do have the "pink slip" from 1958!
It has a 291 V8 hemi engine in it, and it's free and turns. I would assume that it would not take too much to get it running, most likely a good tune-up, carburetor rebuild and cleaning of the fuel tank should get it to run. It has the 2 speed Powerflite automatic with the shifter on the dash.
The interior is complete and there and most of it is left to match for restoration or you can do your own custom interior.
I think you'd have to do some searching to come up with a good solid restorable car that is this complete. It's for sale locally, so I do reserve the right to end the auction early should it sell here locally. A $500 non refundable cash deposit is required within 24 hours of auction close and the balance is required within 5 days. If you have less than 10 feedback, please contact me prior to bidding or I will cancel your bid; sorry it has come down to this. It has a low starting bid and it is a no reserve auction so bid to win!
I'm happy to help with loading on a transport or I may be able to transport locally or within a few hundred miles for costs involved. If you have more questions or if you would like to talk about the car, please call me at 775 772 7504. Thanks for looking!
