You're not likely to come across another one of these at your local car show....or anywhere else for that matter!

This is a super rare car anywhere in the world today, very few would have survived to tell their story, and of those very few would be Hemi cars...

1953 was the 25th Anniversary of the De Soto brand, and a fresh redesign came for the De Soto models with now cleaner more pleasing lines, integrated rear guards and even more teeth in the big shiny grinning grille!

This cool old survivor is in nice honest condition having clearly had a fairly decent cosmetic restoration at some point in the past.

The body is straight and appears very solid with good bones while the older exterior repaint is still very presentable, not perfect with a few blemishes from being enjoyed, but still tidy enough to really look the part and be very usable.

The chrome and bright work all appears to be present and correct, and that trade mark grinning smile and big bold bumpers really look the part contrasting against the deep Jet Black paintwork.

The super cool luxury interior has been treated to a decent renovation too and is finished in a leatherette style two tone classic Maroon and off white, which really looks the part rounded off with a lovely camel cloth power top.

This old girl was ordered new with the top of the range and now totally iconic Hemi Firedome V8! which at the time was one of the most powerful engines in a full size car, and a unit that was more than capable of power this big luxury car along at a rate that was almost unheard of in the fifties, and one not matched by many of her rivals.

The legendary Hemi engine runs into a later model three stage column shift auto and on into a later diff giving this example far superior drivability and general road manners without ruining the overall character of the car.

A lot of subtle and neat touches adorn this old classic, power steering, tinted glass and a power hood would have all been big news in 53, and are still nice to have today in a big 50s classic.

This is a lot of very rare American Rag Top iron for the money, a very impressive looking car that certainly turns heads, and you simply couldn't come close to anything like it registered warranted and on the road today for the money....

Dare to be different!
