Lot 0340: 1941 Chevrolet Special de Luxe Military (USA)
The Chevrolet Special Deluxe Series AH Fleetline was an automobile produced by US automaker Chevrolet from 1941 to 1952
In 1942, many civil production Chevy Fleetmasters were commissioned by the Army while at the same time orders were placed with Chevrolet for the military version as described in TM10-1133.
This example has been completely restored to a very high level in the past and is painted in the military color scheme from 1942. The interior has beige fabric upholstery and headliner in accordance with the original specifications. This Chevrolet with a 216 cu in six-cylinder in-line engine and a three-speed manual gearbox is easy and very comfortable to drive. This Chevrolet Special Deluxe with so-called split window is absolutely great condition, both technically and optically.
Cars from the year 1941 are special because they were built just before car production in America was stopped due to the Second World War. Due to the low production numbers in the years before the war, these are popular cars. In short, this Chevrolet Special Deluxe is a fantastic and unique classic.
