Airstream to pull your Airstream

On eBay (no affiliation). Pretty cool.

Those are neat "Airstreams" also. The Chrysler Airstreams were somewhat of a flop commercially becvause thay were "too streamlined looking".

Now, if a person had a Clipper to haul behind it .....................

A car club buddy took a wrecked '95 Lincoln and put everything into his '37 Plymouth. He pulls a 17' 1970's SOB with it. I don't think he has $7,500 in the car completely finished, having done all the work himself including paint. He's currently looking for an Argosy Minuet.

Several others of our club have 33 to 38 cars they've updated to later power trains and we all pull trailers - sadly they are into the 70's fibreglass trailers but I'm working on them to get "real" trailers (read that Airstream). In our club my '57 wagon is considered a new car and I take a lot of ribbing for that.

Now that's what I'm talking about!
Only made for 2 years, '35 and '36 under the Chrysler and DeSoto badges.

That's only the second one I've ever seen on eBay. The other one was a listed a couple times, and I don't think it ever sold. It needed alot of work. This one looks much better, but you'd definitely need to do alot of upgrading to get it in T.V. shape.

Moosetags - I think that was the Airflow you're referring to. The Airstream outsold the Airflow 5 to 1 in it's first year, and 9 to 1 in it's second (final) year.
