Geez, now that is a rare opportunity! What a car!


Mr. McCandless, you should complete your 58 DeSoto ragtop collection!

Amazing! Magnus, do you have more images to share?
It is astounding that you see fewer of these than Adventure convertibles!
Firedomes, Firesweeps? common as ketchup in comparison

Yes, it's quite unusual. Has already anxiety about a possible sale.

You can have mine for half that amount. More work, but a very loaded
car.

Mike is welcome to it, if he pleases. The reasons and objectives
that drew me to own this car are no longer present and if someone
really wanted it, I am open to discussion.

Geez, Doc! If you sold your De Soto, what would we call you? "Pastor Plaza" doesn't have the same ring.

Well, if Magnus and Doc sell their Fireflites, it is a worldwide liquidation of the rare bird!

Now that's a rare barn find indeed in the first post.
Any more info about the barn?

Wouldn't think twice to trade my '65 300 convertible, but I think there would be an 'issue' with comparing the value of both the cars...

At this point I'm trying to avoid projects as we have multiple projects to finish up over the next 2 years. Still an awesome car.

Is that pale blue swedish car a "project"??


....or are you referring to Doc's project?

...it does need wheel covers!

I think McCandless is talking about Doc's De Soto.

It's not a project, but I'm putting together a museum. High driver quality is great, but not exactly what I'm looking for right now.

This Fireflite is mostly untouched, you can drive it, enjoy it and show it as is.
It's probably the best one that's left. But it's not 100% perfect in any way.
There is a great interest in the car, hoping that someone here on the forum buys it!

Thank you for all comments and messages! Appreciated!
Here is a pick from above. As you can see, the seat covers are
done in wrong material at some time. Door panels are still original in great shape!
