    This was posted at my work today forsale. I really do not need another car.....or make that I do not have enough room for another car. So do you guys think it is worth it. Asking 5,000. 51,000 miles. Never a huge fan of 4 doors but sure looks solid. Just looking for some feed back and push over the edge!! I guess.

    thanks,

    I'm not a big fan of 4-doors either (except wagons), but Desotos are badass!

    It looks like it doesn't need much, 4 door or not for 5k or slightly less you can't go wrong for something you can get in and enjoy today.
     
  4. That is a good deal.

    As long as it isn't all rotten and patched up, etc.

    Nice original cars are hard to come by.
     

  5. Good looking 'Soto. I like that style. If it's as solid as it appears, ought to be a
    good enough deal for the money.

    '55-56 Chryslers and DeSotos are notoriously SOLID cars. That one is a beauty! It will have a 330ci (tall deck) DeSoto Hemi with a 4bbl.

    Worth every penny of $5k. Buy it, enjoy it, turn it if you want. You'll probably end up really liking the car, they were well built and drive really nice. Good luck!

    I just won a 55 on eBay, 4 door 4 barrel. It needs a little fine tuning, but
    "YEAH, IT'S GOT A HEMI." :D

    This will be the wife's car.
