Default 53 DeSoto Firedome-Sportsman "Hemi"

Location: Modesto CA   Price: 6500   
I've owned this car for almost ten years now. Started working on it about 4 years ago. Hundreds of hours of cleaning, painting, replacing, rebuilding etc. etc. has gone into this car. Car was to be built as a mild custom, shaved handles and trim. Frenched headlights etc.

For those not aware this is an extremely rare car. Less than 3K were built originally and I have been told those numbers included the convertibles.

I have many new in the box parts for it and many are already on the car. Jamco lowering springs, disc brake conversion with dual corvette MC. replaced rear end with a 8 3/4 unit that was all rebuilt with all new brake hardware, new radiator, heater core, and the gas tank has been cleaned out and painted. Dash is painted and the gauges have been restored.

Motor (276ci Hemi) was pulled and all soft gaskets replaced, includes, oil pan, valley pan, valve covers, also replaced intake gaskets. Carb was sent out and professionally restored, replated etc. Works and looks fantastic. Motor runs, see video.

All curved glass is good, flat glass needs replacing.

Distributor was rebuild, starter rebuilt, generator was tested and works fine. Its 6 volt.

Firewall and inside of trunk lid and dash have been painted House of Kolors Kandy Tangeriine. Same as the valve covers. I have enough paint to finish the entire car. Roof was to be painted House of Kolors Silver Pearl White. I have that paint as well along with the reducers, clears etc.

New Rebel Wiring kit in the box
NOS tail light lenses
New Tie Rod Ends already installed
New fuel sending unit for gas tank
New rubber for windshield
Jamco dropped springs already installed
Water pump rebuilt
New belts and hoses, has the double v pulleys.
Rebuilt the original fuel pump but cannot get it to work, not sure why.
Carb was sent out and professionally rebuilt and replated and looks amazing. Works perfect as well.
Starter rebuilt.
Painted under carriage/frame

Power Steering (original)

Lowering blocks in rear.

I have the original wheels but the fronts will not clear the disc brakes. I have two of the original hub caps and two mercury hubcaps.

95% of the bodywork on the main body, including the trunk lid have been completed. Doors, fender and hood still need work. Mainly just filling in holes, the body is very, very straight.

While a lot of work has been done, there is still a good amount to do. It could be put on the road pretty quickly if you wanted to forgo the paint and bodywork for a while.

Pink slip is in my name and its currently on Non Op status.

Open to offers and partial trades. I am currently looking for a late 50's four door wagon, a driver not a project.
For the right price I could be persuaded to sell the motor by itself. I have way more in this that what I am asking.

I am sure I missed a few things here and I know I have more parts that I've purchased.

The photos below tell the story from the day I got the car to how it looks now.

Email or call with any questions.

Can email tons of photos if your interested.

Crappy video of engine running here but you get the idea. Runs cool and has good oil pressure.
