The 1956 is definitely my favorite. I own a 1956 coupe that has not been on the road since the sixties (it is the puzzle with the reverse colored cars). If you happen to have any pictures of the dealer and/or De Sotos, I am sure someone in the National De Soto Club would love to have copies.
DeSotoKing: My Dad was a small town (Oberlin, Ohio) DeSoto dealer for the full span of DeSoto existence. I always thought the 1956 FireFlite was the most beautiful execution of Virgil Exner's work. I remember a plum and white stripe coupe he had! I had a '53 Firedome 4-door and a '57 also.Jim
