The design was a success and the car more than doubled in sales in 1955. With a few models available, the high-line car was the Fireflite. Overall, the look of all models was that of two-tone paint and lots of showy trim pieces. Most cars, especially the Fireflite, had many features that would have made any automaker envious at the time. 1956 featured an update to the forward-look design and upgraded the cars electrical system to 12-volt, making it more functional. Larger tailfins were added in 1957 to go along with the fin wars that was happening at the time. Hard times hit in 1958 and public interest in the DeSoto brand fell. Through the hard times, the Fireflite remained the high-line car for the brand and they made it through. Once again, in 1959, the car was redesigned and featured large protruding bumpers, longer tailfins, and full-length color panel strips. The Fireflite name ended in 1960 though some 1961 models were created based on the Fireflite design. After the fall of the Fireflite, DeSoto was on its way out of business by 1961.For more information on this gorgeous 1959 DeSoto Fireflite or any of our 50+ classic and collectible cars always in stock, please contact our friendly and knowledgeable sales team, or always feel free to stop by our Bellevue, WA Park Place Ltd campus - Where we have over 40,000 sq ft of indoor showrooms filled with the finest cars.
