It was a design revolution. The advent of the profession of industrial design combined with wind tunnel testing saw the boxy shapes of the 1920s give way to graceful streamlined silhouettes that spread across the entire industry. Streamlined: Style in Motion features some of the landmark automobiles from this period, including Chrysler’s Airflow, the Cord 810, and the Raymond Loewy-designed 1936 Hupmobile. Headlining the exhibit are a 1937 Delage D8 Aerosport and one of the five 1933 Pierce Arrow Silver show cars. Also featured are a 1935 Stout Scarab and 1948 Tatra T87. This stunning exhibit opened March 2 and will be at the Studebaker National Museum through August 2019.
