Has the rare single spear trim! It's a mess though...

Well one man's minor rust is another man's rot I guess. Gotta love a spartan Flite sedan to dive into restoring this one. Interesting car none the less.

Fireflites came standard with the sweep trim, so either this car was special
ordered without, or it has been reworked since.

It would be interesting to see the data plate on this one!  It sure doesn't appear to have been altered much.

I think it's certainly worth the asking price.

But I am a weirdo that like sedans that nobody else likes. I think the ride may be more than sporty and have a sense of solid quality posts and all. But I really like 4 door New Yorkers and Imperials but I can't afford to restore the later. I do not like 4 door sedan Firesweeps. it doesn't fit the feeling for me. FIredomes kind of but high end fireflite a and New Yorkers yeah! That's quality ride!!! imperial 4 doors loaded is my dream!!!! Someone should restore this car. not for the money, there's no money in sedans, but for the car, the time, the feeling of driving a real quality car.

AH = 5 SS = 1 (I think)

Paint Code CCC says that it was all Haze blue poly when it left the factory

Hey nothing wrong with sedans! They're affordable! That said, I don't care for all those pillars on any 57-59 DeSoto, Dodge, or Plymouth. I think they look good though on the Chrysler's and Imperials. The 60-61 sedans look great across every marque to me.

Single color, Haze Blue Metallic. Same color as my car. Most interesting.
I see it is spartanly equipped for a Fireflite. Maybe the sweep was special
order delete ???

I am always in a quandary about the 58 DeSoto side trim. Basically, I
don't like it. 57 set the bar so high, anything else just looks less "on point".
The monotone car looks elegant in that color, but the single spear with a
kick up at the end is jaunty and clashes with the formal tone of the long
wheelbase sedan and sedate color. But I like unusual builds, so what the
hey ? If it was built this way, it sure would be a standout in a field of rarely
seen 58 Fireflite sedans !

Very interesting.  No code under the "CS" section of the data plate to indicate it came any other way than a standard Fireflite would.

I will put it in the decode page too.
