It is a sad day for me but it is time to let my dream go..I have 2 of these, this one was my dream to get back on the highway as it has a perfect original interior. Seats are great as the seat covers shown in the photo have been installed all the time.
1952 Desoto Firedome S17 with the 276 ci engine and Tip-Toe transmission.
I have the right side stainless trim for rocker panel that is missing and another complete 276 ci Firedome engine, transmission, rearend, steering wheel and column, A arms from another Firedome that I will include in the deal.
This car was a one owner from a family in CT who bought it new. It has been parked for many years covered with a tarp which accounts for the perfect interior but sadly, allowed the chrome to become pitted.
I bought the car and over the past 3 years I have painfully collected the extra parts planning on an eventual complete restoration. Well, that day will never come. I have another S17 that I drive and keeps me busy, this one needs a new home.
This car needed a tune-up when parked. I would not plan on driving it home from my house. It will need to be trailered. I had a company ship it to me from CT to KS, since then I have rolled it around the shed and yard but have not tried to start it yet.
The car comes with a bill of sale, no title required on antique vehicles. I do have a box of paperwork from original owners with repair and service histories dating back to the 50's. I bought it from the family in CT with a bill of sale and just never took it to the county for inspection for antique plate.
Make me an offer, the car is located near Wichita Kansas.
Buyer is responsible for shipping, I will be present for sale conclusion and to verify it is loaded.
