Here you have a seriously restored DE SOTO FIREDOME SPORTSMAN from 1958 which is rare because it is only made in 3825 copies.
The car has been renovated in Finland approx. 2000 hours over a three-year period. It is imported from South Dakota.
The entire body has been sanded clean and then built up with epoxy primer at the bottom.
The entire body is joined with urethane sealant, it took about 10 400 ml tubes. It is significantly denser than an original one.
Changed to alternator and aluminum radiator to avoid cruising cam with open hood etc
The idea is that you should dare and be able to drive anywhere with it.
