That sure is one pretty Firesweep. The folks at the National Desoto Club have a board with many knowledgeable folks. Also check out Desotoland.Com.  Their moderator, Dave Duricey is a Desoto Authority.

Got it home a week or so ago...The photo I posted in Stan's thread was the day it arrived. The photos above are what the guy sent me except for the last one (obviously)...which I took myslelf in my backyard. I found it on a Craigslist ad...in Cleveland, SC. An elderly gentleman owned it for the last 25 years. Sure looks to be a rust free car...I couldn't find any bondo anywhere...Even the trunk floor is untouched. Undercarriage is clean with a bit of surface rust on the outer floor pans. It's pulling to the right hard so I know the brakes will need work. I think the front left is locked up. The guy restored it 15 years ago and hardly drove it so there will be a few things that need attention I'm sure. I finally found (very close to) what I've been looking for...just didn't come in red.  It has a 301 w/ the 4 barrel (power pack) and dual exhausts. PS and PB too.

Nice car, and if you want it red there's a guy in Arizona looking for work at his new home based business - right Chris?

Sweep is my favorite too, naturally... that gold '57 Belvy is better than any red '58!

Unlike the evil Christine,your car is an angel
Actually,Bob.Your  57 Plymie is similar in color to Miss Belvedere.
The only differences I know is Miss Belvedere had the 2bbl 303 single exhaust.
Steve and I visited her in 2008
 
Oh,and God found you your car of your heavenly dreams  and not pulled out from a  grave.

Put it in a hole for 50 years and it will be rust red.
 
I'll bet Chris would do one hello a job and fix all the odd things too.  I could easily put money on that man

Thanks guys...for all your  The car will be staying Desert Gold and Sand Dune Beige. I will NEVER Christine this car although I'm sure Chris would do a fine job on her. She's way too nice as is. Thanks for the recommendation guys and best wishes to you on your new endeavor Chris!
I still remember you for helping me find out what was wrong with my 69 Fury's 318...when the motor swallowed all the contents of the radiator a few years back. You told me to look at the timing chain cover. BINGO. That was it and after replacing it...she's been running great ever since. Thanks once again for that Chris! You are da man
