1937 Chrysler Airflow C 17 Sedan

Chrysler Airflow C 17 Sedan. This 1937 Chrysler Airflow sedan benefits from a restoration that was commissioned in 2005 and professionally finished in 2013. Work included body repairs, a full repaint in blue, and a re-trim of the cream and tan interior. It also covered refurbishment of the mechanicals, brakes, fuel system, and electrics. Power comes from a 323.5ci flathead straight-eight, which is backed by a 3-speed floor-shift manual transmission with standard factory overdrive. This C-17 sedan is one of just 4,370 built for 1937 and is an Approved Classic as defined by the Classic Car Club of America (CCCA). The seller is representing the car for a friend who acquired it about a year ago from an Austin, Texas collector. Services within the last six months included installation of a new master cylinder and a full brake service. This Airflow is offered with receipts totaling over $26k for the refurbishment, recent service receipts, some original spares, and a clean Texas title in the current owner's name. Exterior refurbishment included some bodywork, as well as a full repaint in Meadow Brook Blue. New running boards have been added, and replacement sill plates were hand-etched in Canada. All brightwork was also reportedly refinished and still shows well, with two spots of corrosion on the front bumper shown in a gallery photo. There are dual cowl vents at the base of the windscreen, as well as dual electric wipers which pivot from above are present but not currently working. Each side of the flat-glass windshield opens independently for ventilation using hand cranks at the top of the dash. Interior upholstery, trim, and panels for the doors were replaced by Nikito's Upholstery in Austin, Texas. Sound and heat insulation are said to have been added throughout. The rear seat has a fold-down center armrest, and a chrome robe rail is mounted to rear of the front bench. An original-spec radio has been rebuilt, but is not connected to an antenna. All instruments are said to have been restored, including a 5-digit odometer which now registers 6,344 miles, though actual mileage unknown. The Art Deco woodgrain metal dash has dual glove boxes, and the driver-side cubby holds a modern Equus water temp gauge. The trunk holds a full-sized spare wheel and a vintage suitcase used to store a jack and lug wrench. The 323.5ci L-head straight eight has a cast-iron block and produced 130 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque from the factory. The mechanical refurbishment was completed by Pro Automotive and Body in Austin, Texas. The car runs cool in normal driving, and an auxiliary radiator fan can be manually activated when the car is stopped or moving at slow speed.
