The 1941 Royal Series were similar to the previous year except the bodies were slightly lower and wider. In the front, the number of horizontal grille bars went from nine in 1940, to six in 1941. The Chrysler nameplate was now on the front nose of the vehicle. All models could be purchased with or without running boards. The bumper guards and the decorations on the trunk received a redesign. A Fluid Drive gearbox was standard with a new 'Vacamatic' semi-automatic transmission available at an additional cost. Automatic Safety control gearshift was new, as was the inside hood lock and a steering wheel with no spokes in the upper half. The engine was an L-head six-cylinder unit that offered around 110 horsepower. Four-wheel hydraulic brakes kept the vehicle in the driver's control. There were two wheelbase lengths available, a 121.5-inch or 139.5-inch version. The shorter platform housed a Coupe, Club Coupe, Brougham, Sedan, or Town Sedan bodystyle while the long wheelbase version came as a chassis, 8-passenger sedan or limousine. The most popular bodystyle for 1941 on the Royal C-28 Series was the Sedan which saw 51,378 examples sold.
There were 6,846 Royal Six Business Coupes produced in 1941 and had a base price of $945. This particular example rides on wide whitewall tires, has hubcaps, rear fender skirts, heater, radio and clock. The chrome is in good condition, as is the paint. The interior is believed to be original, along with the wood grained dash, instruments, and knobs.
In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the St. Johns sale presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $30,000 - $40,000. Bidding reached $20,000 but was not enough to satisfy the vehicle's reserve. It would leave the auction unsold.
