  • Event Description Widely criticized when it debuted for its bold snub-nosed look, the Airflow is now revered by historians as a quintessential representative of an entire movement in automotive styling: but it is not just a great body design. It also possesses a myriad of noteworthy engineering advances under its Art Deco fa├žade. Completely restored by the Chrysler Corporation in 1952, this vehicle was donated to the Detroit Historical Museum in 1959, with 28,443 original miles on it. It recently underwent a cosmetic restoration with support from the MotorCities National Heritage Area.
