Mathis Type TY Coupe from 1934 with four cylinders (905 cc). Max. speed: 80 km/h

The Type TY was a medium-low range car, produced between 1931 and 1934 by the French car manufacturer Mathis.

With the arrival of the Type TY, the House of Strasbourg resumed the theme of cars with displacement around the liter, given that the Mathuis with the closest displacement, the Types MYP and PY, used a 1.2-litre engine and were thus distancing themselves.

The Type TY was therefore proposed as the basic car of the range. Offered as a sedan, coupé, convertible and van, the Type TY initially featured a small 905 cm³ 4-cylinder engine capable of delivering 15 HP of maximum power at 3400 rpm. The distribution was with side valves.

The transmission featured a dry single-plate clutch, while the gearbox was a three-speed one.

At the beginning of 1934, the engine of the Type TY was slightly rebored and its displacement was thus increased to 935 cm³ and 18 bhp of maximum power at 3600 rpm.

At the end of the same year, the Type TY was discontinued. The latest examples already had a Matford-branded plate on the frame.
