1921 Chevrolet Series 490 news, pictures, specifications, and information
For the 1921 model year, the Chevrolet Model 490 continued with very few changes over the prior year. It was available as a roadster, touring car, coupe or sedan. A rolling chassis version was also available. Power was from an overhead valve four-cylinder engine that offered 26 horsepower and was mated to a three-speed selective sliding gearbox.

Production of the Series 490 lasted from 1915 to 1922. When introduced in 1915, the cost of the car was $490. It was an immediate success. For an additional $60, the buyer would receive an electric lighting and starting system.

The price for the 490 soon fell to $440.

The Model 490 rested on a 102-inch wheelbase and was powered by a 171 cubic-inch four-cylinder engine that was sourced from the Series H and offered 20 horsepower. The Model 490 was squarely aimed at the Model T, in both price and mechanical prowess.
