DeSoto suddenly changed in 1955; so much so even Betty Grable was forced to stop and stare. She and husband Harry James, with Groucho Marx hiding in the backseat, appeared on national television extolling the virtues of the "Styled for Tomorrow" '55 DeSoto. "Jumping Citations!" exclaimed horse enthusiast Harry at his first glance. "It ought to be great in the stretch. I know a thoroughbred when I see one." Betty agreed, and explained to her husband that the new top-line Fireflite's V8 was the equivalent of 200 "Native Dancers."

DeSoto had power styling to go with its hemi power. DeSoto was longer, wider, and sleeker than any previously. It was also more colorful. DeSoto Fireflites and Firedomes could be dressed up with enormous, fang-shaped color panels that were standard on the Fireflite convertible and hardtop. DeSoto even introduced one of the earliest three tone paint jobs on the 1955 Cornando spring special. The loaded $3,151 sedan was resplendent in white, turquoise, and black.

DeSoto was equally new on the inside. PowerFlite automatic was operated by an intriguing Flite-Control lever mounted on the dashboard. The dashboard was dramatically styled with a dual cockpit gull wing theme. Even the view out was improved with DeSoto's first wrap around windshield.
