It's a DeSoto Firesweep 4HT. No mistaking it for anything else. It's funny that Ford is even mentioned in the listing but I have had people at car shows looking at my '59 Firesweep ask me who made the DeSoto? Many had thought it was a product of Ford believe it or not. Some thought it might be a Cadillac or Imperial! I guess you can imagine that most, if not all, of these people were not old enough to know that DeSotos existed.

Some of these online sales and auction sites give you no choice other than current car makes to list a car for sale.

He could have at least chosen a Mopar name, though.

Best looking Ford I’ve ever seen! I’m so glad to see they ditched their “formal” roofline and boxy bodies and decided to embrace a the look of tomorrow. Virgil Exner couldn’t have done better himself.

I love the color combo of this car and the four door hardtop would be my choice. Looks like the floors are rusted through,at least in the one photo. Beautiful body style though. The rear end treatment on the desotos were superb.

What’s even funnier is that he also got the year wrong. With this being the “information age” where everyone has a smartphone at their fingertips,you would think he would have googled 1960 DeSoto and seen it wasn’t one.
