In 1934 Chrysler introduced the Series CA and the longer wheelbase Series CB. These were intended to be the last year for the platform with Chrysler introducing the very unique and futuristic looking Airflow model the same year. Due to its unusual appearance the Airflow was not well received so they brought back the Airstream series in later years revising the CA/CB platform further. The '34 incorporated some unique components like the swooping valanced front/rear fenders, horizontal side louvers and the opting for steel wheels over wood. You don't see a lot of these cars around nowadays and a lot of those that are around are likely rotting a way somewhere. That makes ones like this cool Chrysler street rod really stand out. Odds are you won't be parking next to another like it any time soon. The Steel body with suicide doors is in great condition throughout and just received a fresh coat of Soul Crystal Red paint which is a Mazda color. The headlights, taillights, and bumpers on the car have been Blacked out which give it a very unique and tough look. The bumpers are a hot rod Black and lights powder coated. The vinyl top has been replaced and is in good condition. The running boards on it have a Black bedliner which is a clever way to keep them in excellent condition. The rear glass is new and it still has its original style tilt front windshield. Custom chrome swan neck mirrors have been added on both doors for improved visibility. It has a steel 4 piece hood that opens from either side and the side louvers have very nicely polished trim. The custom Black wheels look great on the car and are wrapped with new BF Goodrich Radial tires (rear-P275/60R15, front-P235/70R15.)
Open up the hood and you might be surprised to see this hot rod is now powered by a 2005 Dodge 5.7L Hemi motor. You see so many restomods going the Chevy 350 route so this one still being all Mopar is a great touch. The motor runs very well and features a modern electronic fuel injection system. When the drivetrain was redone it was installed along with a Hemi stand alone electronic wiring harness. Cooling is no issue thanks to the custom aluminum radiator and Spal electronic cooling fan with custom shroud. The transmission shifts smoothly and is a 545 RFE automatic. The car also has all new king pins, power steering and a steer clear system which is a very good way to clean up the firewall while maintained clearance for all the components. A new power booster master cylinder with proportioning valve were all just replaced as well as all new brake shoes and lines. The AC compressor works and is on the motor but the AC system is not fully completed. The car just had a tune up with all new fluids, new transmission filter, etc. Other nice upgrades include the the upgraded independent front suspension and custom dual exhaust that is routed out of the side through chrome oval tips.
**NOTE: ENGINE PICTURES WERE TAKING PRIOR TO THE CAR BEING PAINTED
The interior is all fresh and done in Black. It has a nice sliding bench seat with a pleated center insert. The dash features aftermarket gauges which are all working. In front of the driver sits a Flaming River tilt steering column topped off with a Lecarra steering wheel. The Lokar shifter is routed through the floor as well as the emergency brake. The trunk is nicely carpeted and houses the 12 volt battery in a battery box. It also has a master battery cut off switch.
This is a very cool restomod that has a lot of very unique features. It is set up to be a smooth driver and being a Chrysler with a Hemi motor is sure to stand out from other Street Rods.
