Looks like a very nice car.
As Doc would say, Desoto made a good looking Dodge, (or is it the other way round???)

What's up with the left front wheel? Sticks out past the wheel opening and the hub cap is not secured.

I noticed that too. Few things spoil the look of of a 50s car/FL like wrong offset wheels. Looks like a 70s hot wheels model. Terrible.

A Firesweep would have come with a 325 poly motor, so it looks like they have replaced it with a DeSoto hemi. I wonder which one.

What would really s-u-c-k is if the new owner repaired the starter, then found out that the engine was locked up, had a rod knock, or other problems.

What? I thought it sold?
I agree Ron, not repairing a $100 starter, will at best, cost the buyer $500-$1000 in transportation fees, and could hide a host of other issues. Thus, the value gets knocked down by the ensuing guesstimate. It's very irresponsible for them not to fix such a simple problem before it's sold, if that's really all that's wrong with it.
