Beautiful example.

Restored years ago, still looks fabulous today driving through the neighborhood (see videos) however paint has started to crack and spider wed in several areas.

Clean clear Illinois title.

1935 Chrysler Airstream Touring Sedan. This great looking car was restored to near original condition around the late 1980’s or early-to-mid1990’s. The gentleman I purchased it from owned it from 1996 and had taken great care of it, using itrarely in parades and a few car club functions. This older restoration still looks in excellent condition and runs and drives smoothly. It has an in-line 6 cylinder engine, with a three-speed manual transmission with overdrive. It appears that a hydraulic brake booster has been added to the brakes, and gives an assist in bringing this 3,050 pound car to a stop without great effort.

Of significant note, when I parked this car in my wife’s spot in the garage while I worked on some minor mechanical issues after I purchased the car,and after Idrove the car to test all of systems,it appears there are absolutelyzero fluid leaks: no rear end oroil pan leaks, no anti-freeze, no leaks of any kind were present on the garage floorwhen I moved the vehicleafter about a week of minor maintenance in this one location. Ordinarily, 80 year old machines almost always leak something, but not this old beauty.

The previous owner tells me that he had recently spent $1100 on the brakes, and from what I can tell from driving the car,and by the way it stops it appears money well spent. The engine starts immediately whencold with a manual choke, and warms up quickly. No noises,unusual vibrations or visible emissions are present, and it runs quietly and smoothly. All gauges work as they should, and while the speedo works OK, it makes noise at certain speeds.The paint isa lacquer application as was popularin older restoration, and is checking most noticeably on the front passenger door and passenger side hood section,in addition to nicks and scratches in the paint in other areas but it really does not detract from a general excellent appearance overall. A truly nice looking car that has been superlatively maintained over its lifetime. There is virtually no rust anywhere, and looking attheundercarriage suggests this car was never run in foul weather, and as ofthe last 25 years has been a relative trailer queen more than a daily driver.

The following areitems that are non-operational, but may disappear from the listing as I am continually working on these items:

  • Turnsignal lever has broken off. Accordingly, I can’t tell if theturn signals work or not, but I am in the process of correcting this. Turn signals were not OEM to this car.
  • Heater is not connectedto the cooling system.( IMHO, this caris way too nice tobe run in thecold weather anyway, but that’s just me.)
  • AM radio is non-operational, but all the components seem present and intact.
  • Thespeedometer/cable make noise at certain speeds.
  • Fog lights (aftermarket additions) are non-operational
  • Rear passenger compartment overhead light is non-operational
