1958 DeSoto Fireflight Base Description:

I'm trying to thin down my collection of projects, too many project, too many cars....need to get it down to a level I can manage rather than this insane level I bought this truck on a whim in 2017. I bid on line in a Vanderbrink Auction. This was the Hackenberger auction out of Ohio, the 700 car collection. I just wanted to buy something from that auction to say that I bought something from that auction. My first car was a DeSoto and I also owned a 58 Chrysler so I bid on this. I think I paid about 900 bucks and then I spent about 500 bucks dragging it home. I put a used set of rubber on it and than had an Epoxy Coat put on the car, you can see the sanding that was involved. I did that more to protect it as I had no room inside to store it. The Engine bay is unmolested, never touched, the engine turns. Everything is where it's suppose to be, nothing monkeyed with or messed up. Some of the DeSoto letters are missing on the hood. One piece of molding, the left rear quarter panel has been stolen by vandals since the photo. (primarily why I'm selling don't want to car to be scavenged by thieves) The interior is all dry and needs to be completely done over but the door panels are fine, the dash padding is gone and should be removed and or replaced or painted over. The trunk still has it's original rubber DeSoto mat with the words "DeSoto" in place. I'd just like to see this car get into a good home and be driven, it shouldn't take much at all. I never got around to trying to start it up. Also clearly obvious but will state clearly, drivers window is smashed and the windshields been cracked and has rock damage. It's currently located in Maine. This is a fairly low optioned Fireflight. It was never two tone paint. It does have the nice pushbutton transmission too. No Air or any Power features. You'll have 60 days from the Auction to pick this car up then a storage charge kicks in monthly, 250 bucks a month, but if you pick up during a month it's pro rata calculation. (sorry on no interior photos, but take my word it needs to be restored....carpets and seat fabric and headliners are gone.) Rock solid floors, the car is from dry country in Montana. I'm looking for trunk photos, I know I have some somewhere, the car is about 800 miles away from me at the moment.
