Road Trip: 1956 DeSoto Fireflite Sedan in Idaho

Written by Ken Altes

This Idaho 1956 DeSoto Fireflite 4-Door sedan is powered by a 291ci Hemi V8 making 185 hp, propelling its 4000 lbs to 60 mph in ten seconds, topping out at about 105 mph and getting 12 mpg in everyday driving.

I was on my way to Washington State and got a number of excellent pics in Glenns Ferry, Idaho.  Generally, I avoid the superhighways as much as I can, preferring to go through the center of the small towns and down the two lane highways.  My satellite navigation allows me to select those back roads and still get to where I want to go.
