Representing the creation from designer Virgil Max Exner out the the Advance Design Studio of Chrysler. the 1959 Desoto Fireflite sent GM and Ford "back to the drawing board". given the huge sales success of their forward looking cars.  
What you see her is a fabulous and gorgeous  original 87K mile  example of this car. completely rust free  with a lovely and almost flawless Bahamas Blue paint finish. excellent chrome . stainless. glass. trim and upholstery.  
a 9:5 to 1 Compression 383 cubic inch V8 with a four barrell carburator. over 300 hp. and  coupled to a three speed Torqueflite transmssion with push button range selector. the Fireflite accelerates nicely.
Styling cues were now evident from the publics fascination of space flight. reflected in the high aft fins. front bumper "Dagmars" and aerodynamic touches throughout the body.  
Everything works wonderfully on the car with the exception of the clock (which is correct twice a day) and the fuel gauge. which I suspect is probably a float in the tank malfunctioning.  The radio works great and has been converted to AM/FM for listening to those "Oldies".   Another fun feature to the Fireflite is its front seats. which swivel outwards for easy driver and passenger  exit and entrance.      There is no smoke. leaks or unusual noises in the engine and driveline. and the engine runs smoothly and quietly.
This is a wonderful car to own and drive. as well as a great investment.    I have the Desoto Fireflite for sale locally. and respectfully reserve the right to end the auction early.  
Kindly. please do not ask me my reserve.  The "Buy It Now" price should give you a  pretty  good idea as to what I will accept for the car.  
Furthermore. I encourage inspection PRIOR to purchase. and not AFTER as a condition of sale.  You will find this to be a terrific and very impressive car on personal inspection.  Feel free to ask questions.  I have excellent feedback on the cars I have sold. and you can purchase with confidence.
To the winning bidder. a $1000 dollar deposit will be required within 48 hours of auction end. with final payment to be made within seven days of auction end via Certified funds or wire transfer.  
Thank you for the interest. enjoy the pictures. and good luck.
