The Chrysler Airflow was revolutionary and led the way for future automotive design. The streamlined Unibody construction, top-quality mechanics, and Art Deco styling made this car unlike anything else on the road at the time, with design cues fully 10-15 years ahead of the industry. However, during the Depression years of the 1930’s, the Airflows were so ahead of the time and expensive, that few were sold. Hence, this flagship of the Chrysler fleet became a limited-production vehicle, ushered in by founder Walter P. Chrysler. Today, the Airflow is regarded as an automotive design landmark.

 

Mechanically, this Airflow runs great! It is powered by a 323 cubic inch, (130 HP), in-line 8 engine, mated to 4-speed manual transmission, with FACTORY OVERDRIVE for highway touring at modern speeds.
