Description for Chrysler Airflow 1934

This 1934 Chrysler Airflow CY is not only an example of one of the coolest cars that came out of the 1930’s, but also one that was so far ahead of it’s time as to put off buyers and therefore cause its ultimate failure as a commercial success. That makes them super rare now, although we do see them on occasion. This example is an older restoration, It is all original, and looks fantastic. With only 445 of these CY models built, it is a truly rare and most people have never seen one.


In 1934, almost nothing was as aerodynamic and swoopy as an airflow. With it’s flowing hood and grill, much more flush mounted front fenders, two piece windshield, and more, it was a really sexy machine. And it went more than skin deep as engineers actually looked at the dynamics going on inside and underneath cars. With engines located just behind the front axle, and at least half the weight of the car located just in front of, on top of, or behind the rear axle, weight distribution was great for drag racing but not so good for anything else. Stock 1930’s cars tended to get sketchy when loaded with the family, the dog, and luggage if any sudden changes in direction were needed. Not so with the Airflow.

Chrysler slid the engine forward, and followed it with the passenger compartment, so that most of the weight was within the center of the car. This put weight distribution much closer to 50/50 and made it handle much nicer. It was aerodynamic and it handled really well. Sorta sounds like an early American sports car to me.


So what is a CY?

In the United States in 1934 the Airflow was powered by an inline 8 cylinder flathead engine. However, in Canada the CY Airflow Six has built using an inline 6 cylinder flathead instead. As previously stated, only 445 of these cars were made and it was a one year only offering.606 859 4223 Randy
