The 1941 Chevrolet Special DeLuxe and Master DeLuxe lineup were a sensation from the day they were introduced, reflecting Harley Earl’s Art and Color section entirely redesigning the Chevrolet to resemble the costlier General Motors Buick lineup. The Wheelbase was stretched to 116 inches, interior space was much larger with more hip room, the running boards were concealed, and the headlamps were blended into the fenders. In addition, the engine was heavily redesigned with a higher ratio in the compression ratio raising horsepower from 85 to 90, new pistons were fitted, valves, rocker arms, and water pump were all reworked. The engine was called the Victory Six in homage to the war raging in Europe. No copies located in Worldcat. Vg cond.
