Description

An absolutely exceptional example of this extraordinarily rare Imperial C2 Airflow (1 of only 2,598 built between 1934-37 production years) with its original 3-speed manual floor shifter transmission with overdrive on a 128″ LWB.

Produced by Chrysler from 1934 to 1937, the Airflow was the first full-size American production car to use streamlining as a basis for building a sleeker automobile, one less susceptible to air resistance. This example features: Unitized body and frame, 128 inch wheelbase, 8 cylinder L-head engine: 130 HP, Overdrive, Floating ride with floating power.

The airflows were one of the first cars to be designed in a wind tunnel and they were truly ahead of their time. Some 2,398 of this series were produced in 1935. This particular car was restored by marque renown expert Don Seeley. Each of Don’s cars took at least a year to restore. Each won best in show at national car shows organized by the Airflow Club of America during the mid-1980s and 1990s.

The body is finished in Dark Blue aka ‘Fisherman Blue’ by Chrysler and features standard rear skirts with bright stylized wings. The chrome-plated one-piece front and rear bumpers are more solid and narrow than in 1934, and they balance the grille with its Chrysler badge and five bright horizontal bars. Flush-mounted round headlights are mounted on either side of the grille, while a painted steel and bright-trimmed spare tire cover adds colorful detail to the rear deck. The interior is trimmed in button-tufted beige cloth with brown carpeting, with the rear compartment floor featuring a folding footrest. The instrument panel is finished in wood grain with large round instruments in the center and a large glovebox on both sides. The steering wheel and door garnish molding match the wood grain of the instrument panel. The restoration of this CCCA Full Classic Imperial Airflow was accomplished by Don Seeley and assures its new owner that it will be accepted and admired at any WPC, CCCA or AACA event or tour.
