CHRYSLER CU HESTON AIRFLOW/CV ROYAL AIRFLOW

4-door sedan.

Weird streamline confection with semi-unitary construction, fastback, spatted rear wheels, alligator bonnet, forward mounted engine, recessed headlamps and umbrella-handle handbrake, adding up to a maintenance nightmare. Servo brakes and overdrive standard for UK, Royals have longer wheelbase as well as bigger engine. Kew's '1953s' and '1936s' were leftover '34s with the appropriate grille but still with the old bumpers. No '37 Airflows imported.
