MotoeXotica is pleased to announce our latest addition a rarely seen 1959 Desoto Firesweep 2-door hardtop coupe. The Desoto Firesweep was produced by the Chrysler Corporation and sold under the Desoto name from 1957 through 1959. Such as their signature tailfins; the front clip was based on the Dodge Coronet and the rest was mostly true to Desoto’s unique design language. The most telling feature is the headlight design housed under heavily chromed lids typical of Desoto. A Firesweep could seat six passengers and was available as a four-door sedan five-door station wagon two-door coupé and two-door convertible; with two-door models being the rarest. Power was provided by Chrysler’s 361 V8 producing 295 hp. Unfortunately after declining sales numbers 1959 was the last year of production for Firesweep.

Dripping in newly finished classic white body paint and red hardtop this Firesweep is beautiful! The paint is in fantastic overall condition showing minor signs of age; the car shows extremely well. All of the body panels are in very good condition straight from the front end to the signature tail fins. Both chrome bumpers are in very good condition showing only very minor signs of age but still very presentable. Optional dual rear antennae’s are still in great condition along with the other chrome trim pieces that accent the car’s lines.

Inside you’ll find that the largely original interior is two-tone red vinyl with period correct patterned cloth inserts which are in great condition. The headliner is a perforated vinyl material that is in good condition with only minor imperfections due to age. Still retaining the original dashboard and gauges the mostly original interior is in fantastic condition. The push-button automatic transmission selector not only adds an air of uniqueness to this classic but also functions as it should. An optional AM radio with Desoto’s signature clock is still in place too. Black carpeting appears to have been replaced and is very good condition with very minor wear. Finally the original owners choose the deluxe light package to show off the spacious interior for the six possible passengers.

Under the hood you’ll find a very clean and original 361 cid Chrysler big block V-8 engine paired with a smooth and durable Torqueflite automatic three speed transmission. Equipped from the factory with power steering this classic is a joy to cruise in. White wall tires compliment the car very well which are in good condition and appear to be newer. All four original Desoto hub caps are still in place and shine very well.

What are you waiting for? Desoto’s are among the most unique classic American cars and never fail to impress wherever they travels. Pile in your six friends and cruise your way into a past memory. GET OUT AND DRIVE! Odometer currently reads 48251 miles which is believed to be actual as stated by previous owner. However do to age of vehicle it is sold as mileage exempt.
