1958 DeSoto Firedome
Back
Zoom icon

The DeSoto Firedome was one of a glittering array of glamorous convertibles that are easily admired to this day. This lovely DeSoto was professionally and thoroughly restored by Greg Groom at Chrysler Works in California in 2003. This finely presented two-door convertible coupe is attractively presented in Spruce Green Metallic and Willow Green with a white power-operated soft-top, complementary green top boot and a Green vinyl with white accent and gray cloth interior. The power unit for this '50s cruiser is the 361-cid and TorqueFlite three-speed pushbutton automatic transmission Among the features are Electro-Touch Tuner AM radio, dual rear antennas, tinted glass, windshield washers, factory wheel covers, tastefully sized whitewall tires; power steering and brakes. As one of only 519 produced by the factory during the course of the 1958 model year, this is a very rare example. This DeSoto has been awarded AACA recognition in the form of AACA National First Place, Junior Division at Greenville, South Carolina in April 2003, backed by an AACA Senior Division First Place Award in the Senior Division at Hershey, Pennsylvania in October 2003. The car continues to be striking in all ways, and to best illustrate the continuing quality nature of this vehicle, this DeSoto again received the AACA Grand National First Place Award in Lebanon, Tennessee in 2014; a very strong statement indeed. This Firedome is a rare jewel in its own right and this nicely restored example deserves special consideration.
