Wikipedia's take on the Airflite is here, and here is a link whose text strikes me as being taken directly from a Chrysler press release.
The Airflite was a four-door sedan without a full-height B-pillar. In America 1955-1976, we called them "four-door hardtops," "pillarless sedans," "hardtop sedans" and perhaps a few other titles. But they did poorly in roll-over tests and disappeared from production lines nearly 30 years before the Airflite. So to that degree, the Airflite was car-show jazz.
Crossfire appeared about the same time as the Airflite, so it's a slight stretch to claim that the Airflite "predicted" the Crossfire. Both cars have essentially the same windshield. The hood and "face" have similar detailing.
Chrysler Sebring used several Airflite features. Like the Crossfire, the it has the Airflite facial theme. Side sculpting is from the Airflite, as is the general treatment of the greenhouse. However, the Sebring has a slight notchback, and this does not integrate well with the C-pillar area design. The sense it provides me is that the car seems more industrial than automotive, something that applies to the Airflite as well.
