The six McQuay-Norris Streamliners produced in 1934 were built
to be driven by McQuay-Norris engine component sales representatives.
As well as advertising the company, McQuay-Norris used the Streamliners
as test-beds for new engine components, and for this purpose
the interior was fitted with many dials and instruments to monitor
performance and engine condition.
The McQuay-Norris Streamliner's chassis and running gear were
based on a Ford V8, and the aerodynamic bodywork was made from
steel and aluminium attached to a wooden frame. The curved windows
were made from Plexiglas.
