These are some images of the 1958 Desoto Firemite I have gathered over the years. they were a factory sponsored gas powered promotional car used by dealers to attract in customers. They have a 2 HP Briggs and Stratton 6B motor and a vacuum formed plastic body. The plastic body is what killed them between the vibration of the motor and the road along with inexperienced drivers tended to kill them. there are only 5 currently known still around and they are very expensive if you can even find one. My website www.jrcentral.com has a lot more information on these and other powered promotionals. these would be considered G0-karts by today's standards not pedal cars but they were never made for speed they were for style! Go to www.jrcentral.com for more information on powered promotional cars. And if you are looking for parts to restore one or build one from scratch a list of available parts can be found at http
