This website is under constant construction,
The cars are still being cleaned from long storage!
As information is available about the coming auction it will be posted here!
Airstream coupe “very rare” with very nice styling with just a touch of art deco influence. The car is still very dirty but looks very solid and very restorable. Missing trim moldings where cowl mirrors would mount but does not have cowl mirrors. Right front horn grille has one tooth broken out correct original hood ornament and headlights 3 of 4 hubcaps. Floor mat cracked and broken 32,104 miles on the odometer and I would say was original based on the condition of the car pair of fender skirts in the back of the car. If there is a spare it will be puled and placed with the spare parts to be sold separately.
Personal note: after the buying public did not respond well to the technologically advanced airflow series Desoto had to back off of Airflow only production and offer a more conventional model and it was the Airstream series
Airflow sedan appears to be a nice solid original car both fender skirts are in the back seat, interior appears to be redone with a denim type material that may not be correct odometer shows 594 miles but the car does not look that good so I suspect that the mileage is actually 100,594 or someone spun back the odometer, the car has a clock in the glove box door and a south-wind gas heater. It even still has the correct original Desoto script gas cap. Dent in top of right taillight bracket, Interior rear dome light missing the lens. The car looks ver solid and would make a good driver as is or a great candidate for a full restoration.

My opinions and descriptions?
All of my opinions and descriptions of these cars are just that "opinions" I do not guarantee anything for accuracy so take it all
with a grain of salt and look at the pictures (and videos soon) when placing bids on these cars at the auction. Do not come back to me crying that the car was
not perfect because my description of nice varies from yours! I provide these images and descriptions as a public service only, I do not own nor have I owned
Any of these cars I was just a friend of the collector that amassed them and a Desoto collector and fanatic not seeking treatment! Also I am a terrible typer and not an english major so there will be lots of typos.
