Renowned for advanced engineering since the company’s inception in 1924, Chrysler’s radically streamlined Airflow debuted in 1934 and marked a bold leap in automobile design. The Airflow’s safety was unparalleled with its rigid, unitized construction, predating industry norms by well over a decade.

Resplendent in fawn paintwork, this 1936 Chrysler Airflow Series C-9 Coupe is particularly rare as one of just 110 examples built. A copy of the factory build card, supplied by FCA Historical Services, confirms this Airflow C-9 was built with such desirable features as overdrive and power-assisted, Lockheed hydraulic brakes. Its known and unbroken provenance stretches back to 1958. A detailed, concours-level restoration was performed during the early 2000s and more recently elevated in 2016–2017. Shows and concours entries include the Hilton Head Island Concours d’Elegance in 2018, and again in 2021 when the Airflow earned the esteemed Palmetto Award. In 2019, the rare Chrysler was exhibited in Tampa, Florida, at the Gasparilla Concours d’Elegance, winning Best in Class. Other outings garnered First in Class honors at the 2022 Chattanooga Motorcar Festival, and a Best of Show award at the Airflow Club of America’s Indy 2022 meeting. While the Chrysler Airflow was only briefly made, its advanced design foreshadowed numerous design principles still in use among the world’s automakers. This exceedingly rare and sporting C-9 Coupe is a true design landmark, and a most fitting touchstone to the engineering excellence of Walter P. Chrysler and his staff.
