It's a sedan, and hasn't moved in many years due to a transmission problem. I'm helping to advertise it for the owner. She will accept the best offer by July 1, but please make your first connection through me at eandlpetrus@gmail.com Car is in the Seattle area. I don't have any engine pics, but perhaps if you're interested, seller will provide them. I understand mice have taken care of the interior, but the sheet metal looks surprisingly good in these pics. Certainly a great parts car, and maybe a nice project for someone who wants some fun. Email me and I'll give you seller's contact information.

I could use some parts from it if somebody buys it. Too far away or I would make an offer.

Shame, sitting on the ground the bottom is likely completely gone. Good parts car as mentioned..maybe they will sell parts off it Bob?

Must have low mileage, as the fender brows look solid and has wide white walls. Also, has an unusual dual antenna mounting.

Maybe we can talk Doc or Big M into buying it so we can buy some parts!

Nice parts car, but man... that's about as far away from San Antonio as you can get and still be in the lower 48. Whoever does decide to buy better bring a backhoe.

Would have a 4-barrel 341 hemi. Only engine available in a '57 Fireflite.

Apparently. Wonder why in neither the Canadian or the US brochures, they don't mention "hemi" or "double rocker". Based on the words presented, I can't tell which one is a poly and which one is a hemi.

Canadian:

If it's a 57 Fireflite made in the USA I believe it would have a a 341 hemi stamped S-26 xxxxxx but I have also seen some strange things on Desotos that don't make sense.
