The Airomobile

1937 Airmobile Experimental - Dolphin Tail view

In 1937, the Airomobile was a one-of-a-kind experimental model built by engineers from Franklin Auto and Lewis American Airways. 

 It was intended to be a low-priced, mass produced car. The design was the result of Paul M. Lewis, who wanted a simple inexpensive ( target price of $300) and safe automobile in 1934. The three-wheel design met his needs for streamlining, and was also quite stable.
