DeSoto History

1934 DeSoto Airflow

Share on:

By 1934 the DeSoto had become more 'Chrysler-like.' When Chrysler Corporation introduced its revolutionary Airflow design in 1934 it meant all DeSotos had the new look.

The Airflows featured not only a radical new design but balanced weight distribution (the hood extended over the front axles), unit body construction and extra long leaf springs. All this resulted in an extremely comfortable ride.

The car was also fast. A 100-horsepower in-line six moved the car along nicely. Four wheel hydraulic brakes provided ample stopping power. Transmission was a three-speed manual. Although priced at $995, only 1,594 coupes were sold. For 1935 DeSoto also offered a 'conventional' DeSoto.

This award-winning DeSoto was restored from a 'basket case.'
