This is a beautiful example of a 1955 Desoto Sportsman Fireflight with power steering and brakes. Completed in 2015 after a 4 year restoration, the 291 cubic inch Fireflight V8 is pushing 200 hp to the rear wheels through a to a 2 speed PowerFlite transmission. An 8V battery has been installed for better starting. The exterior features fresh bodywork with Iridescent Lavender over Iridescent Plumb paint, both done by Young Kustoms in LeRoy, MN. The chrome has been re-plated and all the stainless polished. The car is riding on Corker 15” WW radial tires with correct wire covers. The interior: SMS Auto Fabrics in Canby, OR provided the correct vinyl and carpet fabric and the final upholstery work was done by Dietrich Upholstery in Waukon, IA. The interior also features a new wiring harness from Rhode Island Wiring, power bench seat, Wonder Bar signal seek radio and electric clock. The correct side view mirrors are not mounted but go with the sale. Viewing the open road through the factory-tinted glass makes the world a whole lot cooler as you cruise the highways in this amazing car!
