Sedan
Chassis #: 5088307
Sold for $22,000 at 2012 RM Auctions - St. Johns, Michigan.
The entire DeSoto lineup for 1934 featured Chrysler Corporation's all-new and radically streamlined Airflow design. Walter P. Chrysler had high hopes for this new futuristic and streamlined model, and five body styles were offered for the introductory year. The design was ahead of its time. It featured built-in headlamps and wider front seats accommodating up to three adults. The hood was extended past the front axle, and the rear fenders were fully-skirted. Other advanced styling features included a rounder radiator grille and a modified vee'd windshield.

The Airflow series had a low-drag body, advanced unit-body construction, and Lockheed hydraulic brakes. They had low ground clearance, and extra-long front and rear leaf springs.

For 1935, the more conventionally-styled SF-Series Airflows debuted, outselling the more radical SG-Series cars by a factor of over three to one.

This particular example is a late-production SG-Series Airflow sedan that was restored by Mr. Randy Rutherford, of Pennsylvania, a former DeSoto Club president. The current owner acquired the car in 2002.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the St. Johns sale presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $30,000 - $40,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $22,000 inclusive of buyer's premium.
