The Chrysler Airflow was one of the very first American cars to use streamlining concept in their design that reduced air-drag.
Built between 1934-1937, the aerodynamic car had a split windshield instead of the single flat windshield. The two windshields were placed at a particular angle so that the air was redirected properly. The interior was quieter and had a large leg room. It had a stiffer body and better weight distribution.
There is also a rumour about this car being imported to Germany by Ferdinand Porsche to imbibe elements of this car in to his creation of the Volkswagen Beetle. Though this is not proven there were few similarities in some design elements.
Some consider the Chrysler Airflow models to be rare, so collectors grab them when available. This model also sold in India through its distributors in Bombay, Calcutta and Madras.
