This Firedome was built in 1957 and comes from the Series S25 Sportsman. The car had its last paintwork in pearl white and wine red 15 years ago, today it has a really nice patina. The body was overhauled and has a preventive coating against possible corrosion, additionally, the interior floor and the trunk have new coverings. However, the car's true quality is below the hood: The 270 hp strong Hemi engine makes for an acceleration that one would normally not expect from road cruisers of this type. So better be careful!
The brand DeSoto was founded by Walter Chrysler in 1928, in order to compete in the medium price segment. Soon after the introduction of the model year 1952 a new 4.5 liter V8 engine called Fire Dome Eight was offered. In 1953 the model types Deluxe and Custom were abandoned. From then on the six cylinder models were called Powermaster Six and the V8 models Firedome 8. At the peak of their popularity the Firesweep, Firedome and Fireflite were De Soto's best selling models. The DeSoto Firedome was a large passenger car offered between 1952 and 1959. Its position, however, changed constantly in those seven years: During the first two years of production the Firedome was the brand's top model, in 1955 and 1956 it was the least expensive model, over the last three years it eventually occupied a mid position. The Firedome was introduced in 1953, shortly before the 25th birthday of DeSoto, it replaced the Custom, production of which had been suspended in 1952. The six-seater was available as 4-door sedan, as 5-door station wagon, as 2-door coupé or as 2-door convertible. In 1955 DeSoto abandoned the Powermaster with a six cylinder engine and produced the top model Fireflite instead, so that the Firedome with its V8 engine would serve as basis model from that point on. However, two years later the series was upgraded within the range of model types when DeSoto offered the Dodge-based, smaller Firesweep in 1957. Production of the Firedome ended in October 1959.
