1930s? art deco car that I can't remember the name of

Its a art deco style car most likely from the 30s. It is a tall sitting coupe with a large front end and little windshield its a rare car that might be a plymouth. I think Wyclef jean might have owned one. Its bugging meand I really really like it?

A Chrysler Airflow perhaps?

I think Chrysler put out a model the called the “airstream” or “airflow”. It sounds similar to your description.

Got pics? There are lots of expensive art deco style coupes from the 30’s with large front ends and little windshields, including the Rolls Royce Phantom III Aero, the Talbot Lago T23 Teardrop, etc. Jean’s tastes tend to run more toward exotics and Hummers with fish tanks on board, so that’s not much of a clue.

no its not an airflow and I don’t have pics its similar but the front end is taller and the windshield is smaller it looks a lot like a concept car

it looks like kinda like the Hispano-Suiza H6C Xenia front end but more robust

A Cord maybe?

Hmmm…Perhaps it was a Delahaye, a particularly beautiful French car.
