Frame Off Restoration
Matching #s


Back in 1957, there were many versions of Chrysler products from which to choose. Styling was 'king' and this rare DeSoto hardtop is a perfect example of a typical offering. The Firesweep 2-door hardtop utilized the popular Dodge Coronet body shell in conjunction with DeSoto's massive front clip and signature rear fins. Our beautiful '57 DeSoto was fully restored (2005) to its factory glory and the current owner (11 years) states that he believes the odometer reading of just under 35,000 miles is actual. The hardtop received a professional respray of 2-tone Frosty White/Light Aqua/Frosty White (data tag codes L-M-L) that is in excellent condition. A restored cloth/vinyl interior exhibits only minor wear on seat surfaces/door panels and the beautiful Firesweep dashboard with factory gauge cluster, optional AM radio (still working) and dash-mounted rear view mirror is classic Chrysler. Under the hood is the numbers-matching 'Poly-Head' 325ci V8 that has never been rebuilt. It is fitted with virtually all of the original components right down to an unusual air filter set-up and was factory rated at 245 horsepower and 320 lb/ft of torque. The transmission is the famed Chrysler 'Push-Button' TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic backed by a factory differential fitted with efficient 3.54:1 gearing. A solid chassis is very clean and the big DeSoto handles well with Chrysler's torsion bar front suspension. Other features include power steering, 4-wheel manual drum brakes (with upgraded dual master cylinder) and 12-volt factory electrics w/generator. Finally, you can't overstate the visual impact of the 14” wide-white bias-ply tires matched with original full wheel covers. Take a moment and look again at the photos. This DeSoto Firesweep is 1957 to perfection and it is ready for a new owner who will appreciate the beautiful style and excellent condition of this full-size Chrysler classic. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
