Tan Cast Iron Hubley Chrysler Airflow


Tan Cast Iron Hubley Chrysler Airflow

Our used tan Chrysler Airflow is in good played with condition.  Chipping from years ago has turned to a dark black patina, as expected with near-antique toys.  The original rubber tires are present.  Nickel plated lower chassis parts are clean with light corrosion in spots, however mostly shiny.

Our toy is a desirable Airflow and in the smaller more affordable size.  It was purchased within Florida from a long time collector.

The Chrysler Airflow is a full-size car produced by Chrysler from 1934 to 1937. The Airflow was one of the first full-size American production car to use streamlining as a basis for building a sleeker automobile, one less susceptible to air resistance. Chrysler made a significant effort at a fundamental change in automotive design with the Chrysler Airflow, but it was ultimately a commercial failure.

By quickly converting to cheaper smaller toys during the Depression, they avoided financial woes experienced by many other toy companies.
