1956 DeSoto Ads

A new perforated mesh grille with a large 'V' in the center dominated the 1956 DeSoto nose.  New front bumper guards incorporated park lamps. A large, V-shaped emblem dominated the rear deck. Redesigned taillights had three tiers of turret-shaped lenses integrated into tail fin rear fenders. Biggest news was that a four-door pillarless hardtop was introduced for both the Firedome and Fireflight.
 
A 12-volt electrical system was adopted  and pushbutton controls were used for all Powerflite automatic transmission controls. A DeSoto Adventurer hardtop paced
the 1956 Pike's Peak Hill Climb.

Model year production peaked at 109,426 units.
