I have for sale a 1955 Desoto Firedome and included in the sale are many parts. It is a very solid car that has been kept in a garage its entire life.Purchased new by my grandparents and was purchased from Dailey Motors in Yanceyville N.C. in 1955 and I have the original registration card. It is tutone Cove green and Lexington green and has the 291 Hemi engine with a automatic transmission. It does need a paint job and has almost no rust to repair. The only places that I can see that will need metal work is a small place on the lower quarter behind the rear wheel on the driver side and on the rocker panel on the pass side in front of the rear wheel. The odometer does not workbut very few miles have been driven since it stopped It does have the usual bumps and scrapes that any car this age will have but only minor concerns. It runs great and the transmission changes great however the last time I drove it the rear wheel brake cylinder was leaking of which I have the parts for that repair. I have collected a huge lot of new and used parts for a complete restoration. I have about $3000.00 in parts for the car to perform a first class restoration. I seats have been recovered and look outstanding. I have the following parts: 1 new left rear brake wheel cylinder, 1 set of rear brake shoes, 1 grille, 1 rear bumper, 1 rear body molding, 1 powerflite emblem,2 new Firedome emblems, 1 new trunk weatherstrip kit, 1 new ourside mirror, 1 new engine decal kit, 1 grille surround molding, 1 new oil filter, 8 new spark plugs, 1 new battery, 2 new battery cables, 1 trunk rod support, 1 new plug wire set including insulators, 1 new condenser, 1 new distributor cap, 1 carburetor that I had rebuilt by a expert, 1 new master cylinder, I had all of the lenses made and includes (2 taillight lens, 2 back up light lens, 1 front emblem, 1 dome light lens, 2 parking light lens, 2 tag light lens, and 1 shifter knob), 2 new wiper blades and arms, 1 tag light assy, 2 tune up kits,3 inside door handles, 1 inside window handle, 3 outside door handles, 2 steering wheel horn rings, 1 steering wheel center, , 1 new old stock taillight assy , 2 quarter panel emblems,1 turn signal arm, 1 new headlight door, 1 dome light assy, 2 new gas pedals 1 new brake pedal, 6 outstand wheel covers, 4 used wheel covers, 1 set of wheel cover decals, 4 used outside door handles, 2 new headlight bulbs, 1 new wiper transmission, 1 seat knob, 1 new outside mirror, 2 rear bumper guards, 2 carb kits, 2 headlight door very good condition, 1 parking light assy, 1 voltage regulator, 1 rear window chrome molding, 2 dash moldings, 1 set of Desoto letters, 5 arm rest, 2 arm rest moldings, 4 taillight assy, 1 box of used parts, 1 original owners manual, 1 shop manual, 3 sales brochures. As you can see I purchased parts to restore and maintain this car for a long time. This is a very good car and would be easy to restore or just enjoy it the way it is now. I have a clear North Carolina title in my name. Pay a $500 deposit within 24 hours of auction end and the rest in cash when picked up. Must be picked up within 6 days.
