1935 DESOTO AIR FLOW...SUPER. . RARE...SUPER. . COOL...OUT OF LONG TIME STORAGE...BLACK PAINT...TAN INTERIOR...FLATHEAD SIX ENGINE...THREE SPEED MANUAL TRANS... ALL GUAGES WORKING... AM RADIO...58,500....... Airflow' design, applied to both Chrysler and its sister marque DeSoto, is one of the most important cars of all time. At the same time it was both an incredible engineering success, as well as a crushing commercial failure. While largely shunned by the car buying public, the radical streamlined design of the Airflow was truly ahead of its time. The Airflow was the first mass-production automobile design with the entire passenger compartment moved forward within the wheelbase and the engine placed over the front axle instead of behind it. The DeSoto SE sedan was powered by a 241 cubic-inch six-cylinder motor that developed 100 horsepower. The Airflow was a dramatic departure from traditional styling practices. From the front bumper back, the design represented the first major attempt to smooth away the wind catching objects and channels found on other cars of the era. The smooth exterior design meant there was a quieter passenger compartment, along with other benefits. It featured wider front seats and deeper back seats with more passenger leg room.SOLD
