Looks like a very solid, original car that needs just a little TLC. Price a little strong for a sedan but clean originals are hard to find. I sent this link to '59 aficionado Bob Terpak in hopes he can decipher the data plate.

Looks a lot like my Firesweep. Could use some TLC as others have noted but not too shabby for as original as it appears to be. Under hood panels are body color whereas mine are black and could be due to the plant the Firedomes were built in comparison to the Dodge plant where the Firesweeps were built.

Bob Terpak confirmed to me that the data plate matches the colors and interior shown in the photos for this car. Again, either a nice original or an authentic restoration.
