Thread: Determining correct model???

    Smile Determining correct model???

    Hi again all - have a question. We have a '36 C7 airstream but I am not sure whether it's a touring sedan or a touring brougham or traveling sedan or 4 door sedan. How do I determine this as I am ordering weatherstip and rubbers and I am not sure which model it is. Any info or input would be greatly appreciated.

    Do you mean to say "C-17"? Got a photo of it? We should be able to tell with that. The brougham is a two door sedan with a "fastback" look to it. The touring sedan had a "bustle" style trunk.

    No, it's a C-7 Airstream. At least as far as I know. Let me try and get some pics up. Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket I have a couple of pics of when it was all together years ago - let me see if I can get those on here too. Thanks so much.

    From your photo of the body shell, if it were a Plymouth it would be called a Touring Sedan. I think, but don't know that, Chrysler used the same nomenclature.
