[IMG]The Benz “Teardrop” racing car was built in the early 1920s, during a period when Benz & Cie in Mannheim were looking closely at the possibilities presented by aerodynamic design. This racing car, systematically built according to lightweight principles and powered by a two-litre six-cylinder engine, featured a body designed to imitate the aerodynamically perfect shape of a teardrop.[/IMG]

Waterman Arrowplane: May 1937

Father of the Teardroppers: Lyman Voelpel’s “Arrow Plane”
http://theoldmotor.com/?p=171888

Quote:
Based on the aerodynamic advances incorporated into airplane design in the 1920s and early-1930s wealthy Chicago resident Lyman Voelpel commissioned the Hill Auto Body Metal Company of Cincinnati to construct his “Arrow Plane” in 1932.

The unique coachwork was built on a 1932 Ford Model “B” chassis with the four-cylinder powerplant turned around and mounted in the rear.

However, streamlining doesn’t always win in the marketplace. When streamlining conflicts with styling, styling often wins. Today, who would buy a car shaped like this?
Want!
