Firesweep sedan turquoise and white with incorrect front fender mirror, hubcaps are inside the car, clock and radio delete, steering wheel has many cracks. Condition lower rocker molding appears to be covering some rust but is a restorable complete car, clean it up and just have fun driving it. 105,032 miles on the odometer the normally pitted taillight towers are in good shape. Single exhaust car so rear bumper and pods are good. 325ci 2-barrel wedge motor

Firesweep sedan in coral and white. This is pretty much a clone of my first Desoto. Rust in rear wheel arches. Correct front fender mirrors, rockers look solid but will need to look underneath. Power steering, power brakes. No clock or radio couple tears on front seat and headliner is damaged. Front rubber floor mat looks good. 325ci wedge motor odometer shows 26,876 miles that I suspect are original chrome peeling on bottom of rear bumper three speed torqueflite transmission. Drive it as is after the brakes are checked

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. .
