By 1960 De Soto's demise was imminent. Nevertheless De Soto produced an all-new body style and Unibody construction. The Fireflite featured a swivel front seat for easy entrance or exit.

The Diplomat models for the same year had the same integrated body, but different styling. The fins were certainly less pronounced. The Diplomat De Luxe 4-door Sedan (below) sports a couple of weird-looking flutes on the roof. No convertibles were offered in 1960.

The DeSoto Diplomat continued to offer a Dodge-based station wagon in 1960, even thought that bodystyle had been cancelled in the U. S. DeSoto line.
