The 1955 DeSoto was longer. wider and sleeker than any previously seen. The line was designed with a youthful verve and spirit with its graceful exterior contours in bright colors. The DeSoto was equally new on the inside. The PowerFlite automatic transmission was operated by an intriguing Flite-Control lever mounted on the dashboard. The dashboard was dramatically styled with a dual-cockpit theme. Glistening modern hardware was fashioned to enhance the overall styling theme.

Even the view out was improved with DeSoto's first “Horizon” wrap-around windshield. Riding in a '55 DeSoto was an experience. The engine was whisper quiet and the ride spectacularly smooth. The car is barely five-feet high and is exceedingly long and beautiful.

The Fireflite has been restored.  It is powered by its 291-cid. 200-hp Fireflite V-8 Hemi engine that is connected to a PowerFlite automatic transmission that is operated via the dash-mounted Flite-Control lever to the right of the steering wheel. The two-tone colors of Emberglow and Black are striking and are complimented by a similarly themed interior. The car is enhanced by power windows. steering and brakes; plus a radio and dash-mounted clock.

The brightwork is distinctive. beautiful and seen in abundance – quite fitting for this era. Dual mirrors. elegant badging and chrome wire wheels with wide whitewall tires complete the elegant. yet sporty package.  Some extra chrome pieces are located in the trunk.

There are a few paint dings in front and a dime-sized touch-up on the rear passenger door.
