The transmission was operated by a Flite-Control lever located on the dashboard. The car weighed 4,070 lb (1850 kg) and cost US$3,544. AM radio was a $110 option. . The interior offered bench seating that could accommodate six passengers. The Fireflite had a 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) acceleration time of 11 seconds and a top speed of 110 mph (175 km/h).

This car is finished in blue tone blue and white in driver quality condition, with nice chrome and trim.  Tidy engine compartment shows the DeSoto Fire Dome Hemi V8 330cid.  This car starts easily and drives nicely with the wide white wall tires.  There is an after-market horn button and direction signal mounted to the steering column.

A couple of statements the dealer should correct: 1955 Desotos had 6 volt electrical systems and the correct engine CID is 291, not 330. Really, Mr. Dealer, these figures aren't that difficult to look up. Take a few minutes to get your facts straight, it would give you a little more credibility.
