1941 Chevrolet Special Deluxe Convertible
Manufacturer: Chevrolet, Div. General Motors Corp. – Detroit, MI
Model: Special Deluxe Convertible Coupe
Base Price: $1,080
Engine: Six-cylinder, 90 hp
In 1941 Chevrolet introduced a completely new body. Concealed safety steps replaced the traditional running boards. These changes would continue through the post-war models up to 1948. They also improved the existing six-cylinder engine for additional horsepower. Chevrolet and other General Motors cars offered shortwave radios as a factory option.
This convertible has a long list of factory options. The 1941 body style would continue through early 1942 when production ended due to World War II. The same style would re-emerge in 1946 with the post-War models.
