1955 Desoto Fireflite Sportsman - Utah Showroom
1955 DeSoto Fireflite Sportsman - Utah Showroom
The Fireflite was introduced in 1955 as De Soto's flagship model. It was wider and longer than previous DeSoto models and it came equipped with a Hemispherical-headed V8 engine producing 255 hp and PowerFlite automatic transmission. The transmission was operated by a Flite-Control lever located on the dashboard.
The car was best known for its long, tapering tail fins, often accentuated by a two-tone exterior finish. The interior offered bench seating that could accommodate six passengers. The Fireflite had a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of 11 seconds and a top speed of 110 mph.
This nicely restored Desoto features a Hemi V-8 engine and Powerflite automatic transmission. The paint, chrome trim and upholstery are faithful to original.
