1935 Chrysler Airflow C-1

Odometer: 47,376 mi

Color: Polo Green, Paint: partial re-coat 15-20yrs ago, polished back to a nice gloss

Interior: total restoration with reproduced original fabric

Engine: Original and repainted, compartment like new

Transmission: 3 speed manual with the first automatic overdrive

I purchased the C-1 because I admired its history of representing a major step forward of the auto industry, including the first attention to aerodynamics, and the first hint of an automatic transmission. I enjoyed the work of returning it to like new condition, my fun is now done, and it is ready for a new home. My asking price is less than my overall investment in this car.

It was in excellent condition mechanically, the original paint with a partial over-coat has a nice shine and a few cracks. I contacted another Airflow owner that had sent a piece of the original C-1 interior to a material manufacturer, and had it duplicated in a small batch of fabric. He had enough material remaining for me to use on my C-1. To make sure it was restored accurately, I found a C-1 in a museum that was completely original. I documented the original interior with a camera, and made complete measurements for the upholstery shop to duplicate (when it was done they also made a set of covers to protect the new fabric from wear). I found matching new fabric for use as the roof-liner and the inside lining of the doors. To finish it up, I found re-manufactured carpet of mohair wool. So it now matches how the car looked in original condition. The original windshield frame was also rusting out so I had a new pair made and It looks like new.

I did make some minor necessary modifications. In 1935 hydraulic brake systems were new, and the master-cylinder controlled all four wheels simultaneously, without a back-up system. I found a modern dual master-cylinder of the same size and had it installed with the front wheels controlled from one cylinder, and the rear wheels controlled separately from the other, resulting in a safety system. So if there was a failure somewhere in the system, there would still be brakes remaining to stop the car. And seat-belts are also installed both front and rear. I left the electrical system on 6V as it was originally, but I did install a 6v-12v converter (under the front seat, with its own on-off switch) for running a modern radio, and supplying a hidden cigarette lighter socket to power other modern accessories if needed. For a modern radio, I installed original appearing speakers in the front and rear that are removable. Finally I had the bulbs of the headlights modified to halogen, for the safety of driving after dark if needed.

To leave the car color original as possible, I had the oxidized existing paint re-polished to a nice shine but is showing cracks and is beginning to flaked off in a few places.

In 1935, a total of 7751 Airflows were built, and were available in 4 different wheel bases C-1, C-2, C-3, and CW.
