The Chrysler Airflow was a full-size American production car and the first to use aerodynamics for more efficiency. Wind tunnel research was used in the vehicles design and it was given unibody construction. The wheelbase measured 123.5 inches and it had the engine moved over the front wheels while the rear passengers were moved forward of the rear axle, thus improving the ride. The Airflow was introduced in 1934 and powered by a 299 cubic-inch flathead straight-8 engine offering 122 horsepower.
The waterfall grille, sloping hood, unique headlamps and fenders were too advanced for the era and sales were disastrous. Priced at $1,245, only 7226 Chrysler 4-door Airflows were sold in the shortened 1934 model year.
