Sedan
Chassis #: 5091863
Sold for $55,000 at 2007 Vintage Motor Car Auction at Meadow Brook Hall.
Sold for $49,500 at 2011 RM Auctions - Hershey.
This 1936 DeSoto Airflow Coupe is believed to be one of only eight remaining from the model year production. It is powered by a 241.5 cubic-inch engine that is outfitted with a Ball & Ball carburetor and capable of producing 100 horsepower. This car was brought to the 2007 RM Auctions held at Meadow Brook where it was estimted to sell between $55,000 - $65,000. It was awarded a Second place in the 2005 National Airflow Club and AACA Jr. Division where it scored 365 of a possible 400 points. The odometer reads just 86,904 miles since new. It was treated to an overhaul in the 1960s which included a black paint job, engine overhaul, refinishing of chrome, and re-upholstered the interior.

This car is outfitted with the optional tachometer which runs off the distributor, and optional electric clock. THe car is deemed to be roadworthy and in very good condition.

There were around 5000 DeSotos Airflows produced in 1936 with only 250 of those being coupes. Of the eight that are remaining, only is has been fully restored. The Airflow design was new for 1934, and it was well ahead of its time. In the front, next to the waterfall grill, were built in headlamps, which were incorporated into the very curvy body. The hood extended past the front axle and in the rear the fenders were enclosed with fender skirts.

The Airflow design remained mostly unchanged until 1936 when it was slightly revised. This was true for the mechanical components as well.

In 1936 a new panel insert was bolted to the roof and served as the vehicles antenna for the radio. It is a unique feature that adds to its futuristic appearance.

At auction, the estimated value was accurate for this vehicle, as a winning high bid of $55,000 was secured, and the vehicle found new ownership.
