    1959 Unfinished DeSoto Firesweep Project. For Sale


    Selling my Firesweep due to change of circumstances.

    Bought this car as a running wreck...Since then it has had all bodywork repaired/welded/completely resprayed.

    All new upholstery...seats/carpets/headliner.Upholstery by Custom Coach Trimming at Honeybourne.

    Completely rebuilt engine,pistons/cam/waterpump/fuelpump/carb/valves/oilpump/electronic ignition.All new nuts and bolts. Rebuilt torqueflite gearbox.

    Disc break conversion.Brand new spoked wheels and brand new white walls.Brand new dual exhaust system.

    All good glass and rebuilt trim. Converted am/fm radio.

    Every part to finish car.

    Tons of spares.

    Will need trunk lid sorting out as brackets need welding in and will need respraying in that area due to mistake by bodyshop.

    Have spent well over 20k on this car, so open to sensible offers.

    If you are seriously interested please call for a chat and well worth a look to those that want a rare UK car.

    Not sure how many miles it has done but new engine hasn"t even been started.

    V5 in my name and receipts for parts.Loads of parts books and catalogues etc.

    Some DeSoto tools as well.

    May consider part ex on Triumph Chopper with cash my way.
