Chrysler Museum unveils rare 1938 Dodge airflow tanker


AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Daimler Chrysler’s Walter P. Chrysler Museum recently unveiled its latest acquisition – a rare 1938 Dodge Airflow tanker.

Weighing 22,000 pounds, standing 27 feet long, 8 feet tall and 8 feet wide, and holding 1,250 gallons of fuel, the museum’s tanker is unique as it may be one of the only “runners” – a fully driveable restored vehicle – in the world.

As one of only 12 remaining in the world, the Chrysler Museum Restoration Team searched all over the world for the airflow tanker.

It was eventually located and acquired from an independent owner in South Carolina and fully restored by the Chrysler Restoration Team in 2001.

Due to its enormous size, the truck will be displayed outside the Walter P. Chrysler Museum at various times over the summer.

The museum is located in Auburn Hills, Mich., and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
