Known History

The 1935 Chrysler C2 Airflow Imperial Eight featured here is finished in stunning Envoy Red with a wonderfully preserved beige cloth interior. This particular example was acquired in the 1970’s by Hollywood Icon and legend Steve McQueen for his personal collection. After McQueen’s passing, the Airflow was offered as part of the McQueen estate and was acquired by motorsport legend, and personal friend of Steve McQueen, Carroll Shelby. The Airflow went on to be well cared for and was one of only a few non-Shelby vehicles in Carroll Shelby’s personal collection. Displaying 58,973 miles, this Airflow is one of only 2,398 assembled and today is recognized by the Classic Car Club of America as a full classic. We are proud to offer this particular Chrysler Airflow with incredible provenance to the most astute collector or investor who appreciates the legendary status of its previous caretakers and legacy of the Chrysler Airflow.
