Renowned automotive designer Chip Foose recently took on an intriguing project involving a classic 1935 Chrysler Airflow. In a collaborative effort with Wes Rydell, who owns one of these vintage beauties, Foose was tasked with creating a distinctive drawing that would bring out the essence of the iconic automobile.
The project began with Foose’s vision to reimagine the 1935 Chrysler Airflow, originally a four-door model. In a skillful transformation, he converted it into a sleek two-door design.
