1934–The Chrysler Airflow Sedan

This is the king of classic cars if there ever was one. You would be lucky to find one of these spectacular cars hanging around today, as they have been very popular collectors’ items. When the car was produced in 1934 just over six thousand units went out for sale because it was complex to make and expensive to assemble. It is believed that automotive engineer Ferdinand Porsche bought a Chrysler Airflow and used it as inspiration for the Volkswagen Beetle.

1942–Chrysler Windsor Club Coupe

It was just after the United States entered World War II that the Windsor came on the market. You may know that vehicle production was actually stopped in the United States around this time to focus on the war effort, and that means production of this vehicle was short-lived and that it is next to impossible to find it anywhere today. Car designer Gil Spear equipped this car with sleek chrome bars and concealed running boards for the car to get its attractive appearance.

1957–Chrysler 300C Convertible

The 1957 300C is a significant post-war American car. In 1957 Chrysler produced almost 500 units of the car. It offered 375 horsepower and could be driven at up to 134 miles per hour, and that was found out because 134 miles per hour was the car’s top speed at the Flying Mile competition at Daytona Beach. Motor Trend actually gave their Car of the Year designation to the Chrysler 300C in 1957. The 300C came with Chrysler’s famous tailfins, front brake cooling ducts and a low engine chamber. The car’s engine was big at 392 cubic inches, and the car was known to handle various driving conditions very well.

1961–Chrysler Imperial Crown Convertible

What was very interesting about this car is that it was considered to be quite luxurious with its power steering, power brakes, push-button automatic features, air conditioning and electric-powered windows. Many of those features are generally standard on a plethora of today’s vehicles, but back in 1961 those features were all rare to come by, especially in a single package! The vehicle was available in a formal black edition that offered a fiery red interior, white wall tires and a white convertible top. However, the vehicle usually came with shiny and sleek chrome bodywork.

We hope that you have taken some information away from this article about vintage cars, and how they may have inspired their future vehicles we drive around in today!
