Definitely the DeSoto.

To my eye, DeSoto styling improved for 1956 vs. 1955, while Pontiac styling worsened.

DeSoto blows the Pontiac away IMO.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

As I see our votes (and I'm with the majority), I wonder where the buyers like us were in '56.

I like the '56 Pontiac.  BUT, against the '56 DESOTO, there is a no-contest.  DESOTO ALL THE WAY!

I’ve always liked the 56 Pontiac but the DeSoto pushed me to a tie.

I usually prefer the DeSoto over the Pontiac for '56, but that's not the case today. Maybe it's the color of the Pontiac that won me over.

I much prefer the DeSoto styling over the Pontiac in 1956.  Pontiac design took a step backward from the lovely 1955 with that comparatively bulky nose design unfortunately.  IMHO it all reversed in '57 though.
