1956 DeSoto Firedome Seville

Here is a very nice and VERY RARE 1956 DeSoto Firedome Seville 2 door hardtop sport coupe (no center post when you rolldown the windows). This car is very stock and original looking, NOT a modified hot rod. Very stylish 50's car! Very solidthroughout! It was painted one time over 20 years ago, still looks great and holds a nice shine! Engine and transmission are verystrong. Features a 331 Cubic Inch Hemi V8 and "Powerflite" push button drive automatic transmission. Interior is excellent!Recently driven on a 2 hour trip in 85 degree weather at interstate speeds with no issues! Very strong and drives nice. All originalunder hood, not modified.
This is a very rare model that was only made for 6 months as GM sued Chrysler over using the name Seville. GM had the rightsand was using that name on Cadillacs. DeSotos from the Virgil Exner "Forward Look" era are hard to find to begin with. This oneis doubly rare! When is the last time you ever saw one? Classic 1950's colors of pink and black, too! Don't miss this rareopportunity!
ABOUT ME: I have collected old cars for over 40 years. I favor original stock cars that have not been hot rodded or modified. Iwill sometimes sell one out of my collection to make room.
Call me with any questions at:
518-604-4237 or 518-604-4186. IMPORTANT: CALLS ONLY, NO TEXTS!!! These are landline numbers and do NOT havetext capability.Best to CALL BOTH NUMBERS and leave word at both if no answer.

3. Car and ownership paperwork will not leave here until car is paid in full with cleared funds at my bank or cash. Please rememberthat due to increased fraud with official checks and money orders, banks now hold the deposit up for as many as 10 business days.Best way to pay is by bank to bank wire transfer, it protects both buyer and seller. This is what I prefer.
4. Car is sold strictly AS/IS, NO WARRANTY at my premises. Transportation/shipping is buyer's responsibility. I will help youany reasonable way I can, but it is still your responsibility.
5. Car can remain here for a reasonable amount of time while you are arranging transportation or pickup, but still must be paid infull within the 7 days. Also, once you buy, you need to insure the car, as I cannot be responsible for acts of God or damage beyondmy control.
6. International buyers are welcome, but must pay with wire transfer, and again, must be paid with cleared funds before car andownership paperwork will be released to your shipper.
7. Please remember, this is NOT a new car. It is a very nice classic car that is 64 years old. As such, there are some flaws that areconsistent with this (minor nicks, dings, cosmetic imperfections, etc.). It is a clean car, but is by no means a 100 point show car.Please realize this when you bid.

I am sorry for all the rules, but it seems 5% of difficult people spoil things for the 95% who are good. Thanks for looking, goodluck, and again, feel free to call me at 518-604-4237 or 518-604-4186 (landlines). Again, call and leave word. NO TEXTS,CALLS ONLY!
