Flow to go.

Flow to go.
When the Chrysler Airflow hit the streets in 1934, it was like nothing the American motorists had ever seen before. The airflow made use of new metal technology and streamline design to reinvent the car as a total design concept.

Its in-line eight cylinder engine was suspended over the front wheels, its passengers cocooned between the axles, giving the smoothest ride on the market. The Airflow was everything we now take for granted in a car.

Perhaps that's why it was a design classic, and a commercial flop. The american public was not ready for such a radical design, and it ceased production in 1937.

In Britain they were sold as the Chrysler Heston, and were assembled at Kew, near London.
