1959 DESOTO FIREDOME BLUE CONVERTIBLE

Purchased around 13 years ago in Georgia USA.
A true barn find and the last tags on the licence plates were in 1969. A low milage car but needing full resto.
There was very little rust which is unusual for these Forward Look era cars, the early retirement from daily driving is most likely the cause of that.
1 of 299 made and 59 was the last year for convertibles for Desoto. An original convertible with the original build sheet from the Daimler Chrysler museum verifying that.

100% original, that?s why there is points in the distributor and drum brakes all around.

The colour is an original Desoto colour.
The convertible top is made of BMW Haartz canvas and is one of the few things not original.

Just about everything on the convertible is new, NOS or restored.
The clock was rebuilt by Jay Lenos workshop contacts.
The radio was brought over to the states to be restored and she has had FM added to the insides but she looks 100% original.
