1941 Chevrolet Special Deluxe news, pictures, and information
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.Source - AACA Museum

The refined 1941 Chevrolet engine produced 90 horsepower from its 216.5 cubic-inch displacement. With war looming, it was named the 'Victory Six.'
Slightly more than one million Chevrolet passenger cars were built - plus about 650,000 trucks - for 1941. Chevrolet owners could personalize their vehicles with numerous factory-installed accessories, and even more authorized items were available through dealerships. Options on this featured convertible include GM accessory bumper guards, Guide fog-lamps and 'washboard' corrugated front fender trim, which was offered only for 1941.
The top-of-the-line Super DeLuxe Series included Chevrolet's only open style for 1941. Listing for $995, this Convertible Coupe's standard equipment included a power top, lowered and raised by a vacuum-operated system.
This beautiful example is one of the 15,296 Special DeLuxe Convertibles made in 1941. It is finished in Ruby Maroon Metallic, with red leather interior. The car was completely restored by the owner and his family.
