This 1955 model is in very good condition. It has a 291 CI . 200 HP Hemi engine. The car runs and drives well. This is an older restoration. The paint is in excellent condition. The mileage shows 45. 92. but actual mileage is unknown.

The 1955 DeSoto was more rakish and sporty looking than the standard run of Fords and Chevrolets that year. and the model was graced with an assortment of showy trim pieces. Bright backswept fender ornaments encompassed the headlights. a large hood ornament sat above the grille. trim adorned the hood line. a chrome-lined color sweep extended the length of the car. more trim was affixed to the lower rocker panel. and V-8 emblems abounded. .

Production totals were not high – about 37. 00 Fireflites were made
