Classic Car Overview

PRICE REDUCED!! This 1937 Chrysler Airflow Series C-17 Eight Coupe is a wonderful original example that has been restored only as-needed. In absolutely excellent mechanical condition throughout, this survivor can be driven to any concours event or CCCA CARavan with confidence. These incredibly rare art deco masterpieces are gorgeous to behold and are an important part of American automotive history. When the Airflow debuted, it had set 72 land speed records as well as numerous engineering firsts. Chrysler had always been an engineering led automotive company. Chrysler engineers Owen Skelton, Carl Breer and Fred Zeder, known as the Three Musketeers, relied on science to develop one of the most advanced cars of its time, the Airflow. They even contracted with Orville Wright to develop aerodynamic theories on automotive design. But the breakthroughs didnt stop with its unique looks, the unibody construction, nearly 50-50 weight distribution, advanced suspension design and mechanical overdrive were far ahead of its time. The 1937 Chrysler Airflow is the last year of the Airflows and the most refined. This example, being the C-17 Eight Coupe, is a full classic with the Classic Car Club of America and as such is accepted at leading concours and touring events across America. There were only 230 C-17 Eight Coupes produced, a mere 5f the C-17 Eight production. Of the 230 examples, it is likely that no more than 10urvive today. The coupes truly represent one of the ultimate streamlined art deco masterpieces and are typically acquired by major collections. HISTORY OF THIS AIRFLOW COUPE- The history of this Airflow Coupe is well documented for the past 60 years. From 1962, she was owned by John O. McLean of Richmond, VA and then Jack W Ritter of Youngstown, OH from 1978 through the 1994. The next owner was Peter Matuszek of St. Charles, IL through 2014. She was then owned by Deb Powless until 2018.The last owner of this C-17 Coupe was Tom Griffith from Verona, WI who acquired her for $118,000 in 2018. He was amassing a collection of important and interesting motorcars. The livery of this sexy and curvaceous Coupe is Black with beautiful chrome and stainless-steel art deco trim. The paint is assumed to be an older excellent repaint with fantastic shine and luster. It has been very well polished and is mirror smooth. There are the normal small imperfections near the leaded seam areas, which are only visible upon close inspection. There are also several very small touched up chips in the normal high use areas, such as near the door jams, etc. Overall, the paint quality is excellent. The wide white wall tires look right on this Coupe, giving it a very elegant look. The chrome and stainless steel are in very good to excellent condition overall. The running boards are original and display in good condition. We have included many close-up photos in the photo gallery of the paint imperfections and running boards, so rest assured this is a wonderful example. The in
