DIXIE FLYER
Árgerð 1919 / Model Year 1919.

Þessi bifreið var fyrsta bifreiðin sem starfrækt var við leigubílaakstur á Akureyri.
Dixie Flyer bifreiðar voru framleiddar í Bandaríkjunum á árunum 1916 til 1923 af fyrirtæki sem hét Kentucky Wagon Company.
Eftir því sem næst verður er bifreiðin á Akureyri önnur tveggja Dixie Flyer sem vitað er um í heiminum.
Dixie Flyer bifreiðin "A-2" er í eigu Arngríms Jóhannssonar stjórnarformanns Flugsafns Íslands.

This automobile was the first taxi cab to be operated in Akureyri.
Dixie Flyer cars were manufactured in the U.S.A. by the Kentucky Wagon Company in the years from 1916 to 1923. As far as can be determined this Dixie Flyer is one of two surviving examples in the world.
The Dixie Flyer is owned by Arngrímur Jóhannsson, chairman of the Icelandic Aviation Museum.
