Firedome 2-door coupe hemi with air conditioning? Has clear plastic seat covers and door panel covers that appear to have been there since new so the interior is very good? The door trim strips are over the plastic so it makes me think it was a factory job? Radio and clock along with under dash air. 95,353 miles on the odometer so it must have been well taken care of by someone? Aluminum doorsills are in nice shape. The car is very solid and will make a nice driver as is. But headliner is damaged in a couple areas. Looks like it has a padded dash even? The steering wheel shows some cracking.
Firedome sedan appears to have had a trailer hitch mounted at one time as it has a patched in hole under the trunk lid where the wiring harness would have mounted, body damage left rear fender, rocker rust out, has correct hubcaps in trunk, has a radio. Incorrect gas cap, rust damage above headlights. More body damage on left front fender, poor sheet metal patch above grille between headlights and hood on both sides, rocker moldings used to cover rocker damage. Hood off center but this is normally corrected easily. Steering wheel lots of dents in trim. 105,155 miles on the odometer
Personal note: grille and Hemi engine alone carry most of the value of the car

My opinions and descriptions?
All of my opinions and descriptions of these cars are just that "opinions" I do not guarantee anything for accuracy so take it all
with a grain of salt and look at the pictures (and videos soon) when placing bids on these cars at the auction. Do not come back to me crying that the car was
not perfect because my description of nice varies from yours! I provide these images and descriptions as a public service only, I do not own nor have I owned
Any of these cars I was just a friend of the collector that amassed them and a Desoto collector and fanatic not seeking treatment! Also I am a terrible typer and not an english major so there will be lots of typos.
