This website is under constant construction,

As information is available about the coming auction it will be posted here!



1956A
Firedome convertible 2-barrel 331 hemi with power steering, power brakes, dual antennas and dual mirrors, it even appears to have the correct original era seat belts along with clock and radio. The blue wheel that was on the car must have been bad since the car sports a green wheel instead? And the interior fabric does not appear to be original, But it is a forward look era ragtop and they are not easy to come by! Looks like a nice solid car? I lost the digital file on this one so I do not know the miles. The pictures tell most of the story but I will get more details on the next trip after the cars are cleaned.

1956B
Fireflite 2-door hardtop red and white 331 hemi with a 4-barrel, Power steering, power brakes, power seat, power windows, leather interior, radio and heater but no clock on the top of the dash or in the steering wheel. Appears to have solex glass? The steering wheel is nice 46,756 miles on the odometer that I would suspect is original. Clean it up and use it as is or restore it. This is a very well optioned car and you do not see leather interiors on Desoto’s very often I seem to remember Chris telling me he got this from some bachelor?

1956C
Firedome maroon and lavender 4-door sedan 4-barrel 331 hemi with power steering and power brakes, factory radio and clock interior has some signs of mice. Will need to get this one cleaned up to take a better look rear bumper and rear quarters show some rust along with dog leg area. Steering wheel is wrapped up it is probably damaged? Missing trim clip on back window. 81,815 miles on the odometer.

1956D
Fireflite silver and maroon 4 door sedan interior appears original appears very solid I did not get the original miles so the details will need to wait until next trip when the cars are cleaned

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. .
