De Soto 1959

Adventurer
Firedome – end of prod.
Fireflite
Firesweep – end of prod.
Cella I – prototype

Higher power output in Adventurer is achieved by use of modified camshafts and two four barrel carburettors instead of single one in Fireflite. Other models have single two barrel carbs. All engines need premium, high octane petrol, because of very high compression ratios.
