1941 Chevrolet Special DeLux (The Contest Winner)

Click on pictures to Z O O M in.

Correction, one of my readers notified me that this is a 1941 Chevrolet, not a 1942 as was originally posted. Thanks go out to “Guru” for pointing this out. Here is a link to a similar 1942, Two things caught my eye, the grills on the two cars and the way the front fender is carried through the door on the ’42.

Thank you Peter, you guessed the “Mystery Car”. This car is beautiful. I wish I knew who the driver was. I’d love to photograph this car at less than 65 MPH.

In 1942 the Chevrolet Master DeLuxe and Special DeLuxe models were almost identical to the 1941 versions. Chevy introduced a new two-door fastback called the Fleetline Aerosedan, their best-seller that year with 61,855 produced. With World War II underway, production numbers of 1942 Chevrolets saw a sharp decline of approximately 75%. On February 1st, the government ceased production of all American cars.
