Oops,that's Dawson Blackmore's FINE ride (no matter how much Dave Lisiecki would LIKE to have it!) It's especially interesting that in the car's history on http://www.ctemsi.com/ that it was built out of the front of a 4-door Firesweep and a 2-door DeSoto for the back! It seems to me that this would be cost-inefficient versus the typical conversion on one wagon chassis (and this extra cost was passed along to the buyer!) I assume they sold the unused front and rear halves for parts. Hey,Alumcan,as far as production figures go, Dawson's car is literally TWO of the 1957 DeSoto production total!
