Can you get a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood or drywall in the back of that Desoto wagon?

The '55 states Eight Cyl but it's clearly a Flathead 6.

The DeSoto wagon would go great with my 53 Coronet convertible.

The '55 Belvedere 4 dr sedan in Littleton in the first link states "8 cylinder" on the right side info bar, but in the pic is clearly shown a 230 cu in "Powerflow" (LOL) 6... capiche?

Easy to miss!  That De Soto has been for sale for a long time.  I think a seller wanted $32K for it just a year ago or so...

It's a really neat wagon.  I still like the 1956 De Soto wagons better! 

 

Rich, that '53 Coronet convertible is awesome!!!

Cute indeed... our youngest looked like that over 25 yrs ago!

I really like that '55, if it had the 260 Hy-Fire v8 and Powerflite with Power Steering I'd be mightily tempted!
I've always felt that a wheelbase of 115" and LOA of about 200" is really the perfect size for a family car.
Ironically that's about the size that '60s intermediates ended up, as evidently even the car-makers themselves realized that the 220" whales that "standard size" cars became were really too much. They're certainly a handful to drive and park today.

It must be a nifty knick-knack that comes with the car, but doesn't go with the car.

The image of the engine bay has no compressor, condenser, evaporator, ...

That thing isn't self-contained, is it?
