  5. 1937 Airomobile

    After Franklin Automobile Company closed in 1934, Carl Dohman and Edward Marks, former engineers with Franklin, formed their own company to develop a new air-cooled gasoline engine. Paul Lewis of Denver, Colorado had conceived the idea for this futuristic automobile and in 1936 contracted with Dohman and Marks to build a prototype.

    They hired John Tjaarda, designer of the Lincoln Zephyr, to create the aerodynamically-styled model and construction began on the three-wheeled, front-wheel-drive car. It was pronounced road-worthy in April, 1937.

    The Airomobile prototype shown above was driven more than 45,000 miles throughout the United States in a promotional effort to raise production capital. This effort fell short of its target and this was the only Airomobile built.

    The 1937 Airomobile prototype featured:

    Engine: Air-Cooled OHV 4-Cylinder Horizontally Opposed
    Bore: 3-7/16 inch
    Stroke: 3-1/2 inch
    Displacement: 129.9 cubic-inches
    Horsepower: 60
    Target Price: $550
    Top Speed: 80 mph
    Fuel Economy: 43.6 mpg
