1955 DeSoto Firedome 30. 00 mile Survivor. VIN 55220665 Super Low Reserve Price

This is a 1 in a million survivor.   You can look for 20 years before you find one this rare.

PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT BID IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO COMPLETE THE PURCHASE.


I purchased this DeSoto 3 years ago from an elderly gentleman in Montana as a 26. 00 mile 3 owner. one family survivor that spent her entire life in Montana.   She has been garage kept all her life and it shows.   Unfortunately the garage she was kept in the last 20 years had a patio door that cast light on the hood and fender tops resulting in fading to what is otherwise a shiny factory original green lacquer paint.

 

When I bought her I installed 4 new Coker Radials and a new radial spare.   Had the brakes refurbished with new brake line connectors. wheel cylinders. shoes. and and had the original drums refinished. I also had the original radiator re cored and changed the hoses which were all original. When I recently photographed the under carriage I did not like the look of the front shocks so I replaced them this week with new ones from Kanter.

 

She bears her original 291 cubic inch Hemi engine. Automatic transmission. Power Steering. and Power brakes.   There is one small spot of rust half the size of a dime on the right fender (photo with dime for comparison).   Otherwise she is rust free.   The heater core was bypassed when I got her and I do have a replacement heater core for the new owner if they wish to have heat in the winter.    The right side of the windshield has 2 scratches from the wiper blade. Small leaks from oil and trans pan gaskets.

Now:  What works like new:  headlights (high and low beam) turn signals. reverse lights. brake lights. dash lights. glovebox light. horn. parking brake. radio(blows the fuse frequently). windshield wipers. all vents. amp gauge. fuel gauge. oil pressure gauge. water temperature gauge.

 

I have driven her over 4. 00 miles in the past 3 years.   In late August I drove her to/from topeka. KS (1000 miles)  in a weekend.   This was 8 hours each way on the highway.    At 70 miles per hour she achieved 15 miles per gallon of gasoline.   You should not be afraid to fly in and drive her home to anywhere in the continental United States. I have attached a 7 minute video of the Desoto on the highway cruising at 85 miles per hour.
