De Soto, of course, only offered Airflows during the inaugural year for the model in 1934, but lackluster sales caused Chrysler Corp. to offer a more conventionally designed De Soto as a companion to the Airflow from 1935 on. That conventional-looking De Soto was dubbed the Airstream. Of course, in this photo, the Airstream isn’t a De Soto, but an aluminum trailer!
By all appearances, the Airflow coupe is a 1934 De Soto model with a few custom touches (note the split front bumper that shows off the “falling grille”) and the lowered suspension. I didn’t hear the car run, so I can’t tell you if it’s a Hemi, a small-block 360-cid V-8 or an original L-head six under the hood. Regardless, the airy pair made for a great photo.
