Chevrolet marketed its volume-leader Deluxe line of automobiles from 1941 through 1952. The 1941 Chevrolet was the first generation of Chevy that didn’t share a common appearance with Chevrolet trucks.
The most notable design feature, share with all other General Motors vehicles of the period was the increase in width in order to accommodate three passengers in the front seat. Stylists accomplished this primarily through the elimination of the running boards that adorned most cars up to that point in time.
The original series ran from 1941 to 1948, after which a new body style was introduced for 1949, running through 1952. During the post-war years and continuing through the early 1950s, the Deluxe range was Chevrolet’s sales leader, offering a balance of style and luxury appointments unavailable in the base Special series; and a wider range of body styles, including a convertible, fastback “AeroCoupe”, two- and four-door sedans, and four-door station wagons. The only engine choice was Chevrolet’s 90 horsepower 216 cubic inch “Blue Flame” inline six-cylinder 90 horsepower at 3,300 rpm.

What is the reserve on this
As is customary with all reserve price auctions, the reserve is not revealed until the high bid meets or exceeds it. Unlike other auctions, however, we provide a “Reserve Meeter” on each bidding page that changes from dark blue to lime green as the high bid increases. While it does not list actual values, once someone starts bidding, you can use the Reserve Meter to approximate the actual reserve price. Our advice: register as a bidder, enter your first bid, and then see what the Reserve Meter indicates.
