Chrysler Airflow Coupe

The Chrysler Airflow was a full-size car produced by Chrysler between1934 to 1937. It was one of the first full-size American production car to use streamlining as a basis for building a sleeker automobile, one less susceptible to air resistance. Two body styles were made, ‎four door sedan and two door coupe.

Ultimately, the car proved to be too advanced for conservative American taste. Therefore while the Airflow may have signaled an attempt by Chrysler to set itself apart from other manufacturers, the failure of the car in the marketplace caused the company to take a more conservative path with its future models.

The Chrysler corporate styling remained conservative and mainstream until Virgil Exner introduced his Forward Look range in 1955
