The development of the Airflow began in 1928 and resulted with the introduction of the Chrysler and DeSoto automobiles in 1934. Although always intented to be a DeSoto only, the Chrysler model was an afterthought by Chrysler Corp. intended to reap more profit. Not only were Airflows the first autos designed as a result of wind tunnel testing of models, they also incorporated many improvements which are commonplace today. As a result, many believe that the Airflow made more significant contributions to the auto industry than any other auto in history.
In every year of production, Art Deco styling increased. in this 1937 model, the very last year of production, note the art deco grill, the door handles, the running board mouldings, the sunburst wheels, the cloisonne emblems, and the deep cushion of the seats. The Chrysler with its powerful 8 cylinder engine is the ultimate and most desirable Airflow, the top of the line! Subesequently very few- only 4600 in total -were made initially and they are a rare sight at any event. 1937 was the final year of Airflow production.
This very nice example is in great running condition and needs nothing to be pressed into immediate service. Everything on this car is correct as it left the factory, The paint and chrome are in very good condition-as is the glass, and the car has a new set of wide white radials. The interior is very nice was well and beleived original, with the correct woodgrain, and stunning Art Deco appointments. I cant say this enough -this car runs and drives without fault and can be immediately toured with confidence.
If you are looking for a desirable Airflow, the Chrysler 8 is the one buy.
