<em>MUST SELL - REASONABLE OFFERS CONSIDERED!!</em></p><p>1956 Desoto Fireflite Convertible, this car has had a full nut and bolt, frame off restoration costing more than $200,000 and is a stunning example of 50s Motown perfection. The car is running its original 255 HP 330 cu. in OHV Hemi V-8 engine. Topped off by a single Carter 4 barrel carburetor. First year for the type writer four button automatic transmission. This rare beast is optioned with power steering, power brakes, power convertible top, power windows, power seat and real Kelsey Hayes wire wheels. Nothing has been overlooked during the resto. A beautiful color combination of Plum and Black exterior paint that is flawless. The drive-train was completely rebuilt from top to bottom and has traveled less than 1,500 miles since restoration. This is a very dependable car that runs and drives as good as it looks and can be driven anywhere. All chrome, stainless and other bright work is very nice and the interior has been completely restored to the level fitting the rest of the car. This is an investment grade 50s convertible that will only appreciate over time. Must be seen to be appreciated!</p><p><br />This car was LOT # 705 at the inaugural BARRETT-JACKSON auction June 25th at Mohegan Sun in CT - it bid to $132k (SOOO CLOSE!)
