Hate to say it but I love it. Makes me appreciate the 55 Desoto's lines even more. Makes it look much more muscular. And getting rid of that toothy grill wasn't a bad thing.

I dunno that grill is amazing. The 55-56 cars are really under appreciated. I am really dying for a Imperial or Fury from those years.

I know they didn't get torsion air(no squat, anti roll etc) but still great cars.

Dave, you're up for a Drug and alcohol test!

55 and 56 Desoto's deserve to be saved, even if it is to create something like this.

I'm a big fan of the mad max series. They have a car show for mad max style cars. I have a junk 61 imperial that after parting I would like to build into one of these. https://www.wastelandweekend.com/wastelandworldcarshow/

The pink one was in the Road Warrior and was a '59 Firesweep 4dr sedan. It got swept with fire so I guess that's why they chose it for the shot.
