1935 Dodge Airflow


Truck Information:
This unrestored 1935 Dodge Airflow Texaco fuel tanker is a real beauty. Chrysler, Dodge and Desoto made revolutionary stylish Airflow cars in the 30s. The rounded corners, sloped nose hood and fenders were a streamlined and radical design innovation at the time. I love the big headlights, oversized doors and fancy chrome on this beauty. The tanker was especially made to match the lines of the cab, this was a really neat truck in its day. See that shiny railing, that's nickel-plated. Those steps moulded into the body, that's an aerodynamic feature. They put a lot of thought into the design of this truck. The cab had some groundbreaking styling as well. At the time nobody thought about driver comfort. There is a little crank to open the front windshield. Drivers used to talk about 2-50 air conditioning, open two windows and drive 50 miles per hour. This cab had 4-50 AC, you could open the side windows and the windshield. Even unrestored it's magnificent, and we're going to be restoring it back to like-new condition.
