PICs added: My memory of owning a 1934 Airflow 4DS was that they had no specific function
but were instead a design feature of the late art deco period one typical of the time & also found in lounge chairs and couches.
The four door sedans rear seats had the same tubular chrome design feature and here they had arm rests with padded cushions to make resting easy.
Here are two pix of my 1934 Chrysler Airflow CU 4DS taken
in 1972. The Black coupe is a 1934 LaSalle and the other green car is a 1937 Buick 4DS. All now long gone but not forgotten.

Here is the Airflow after it was restored by its new owner.
