Footnotes

  • By the early 1920s Chevrolet had abandoned its attempt to compete head-on with Ford's Model T and repositioned itself as a 'middle-market' manufacturer whose products possessed a degree of refinement lacking in the Model T. Formerly relying on four-cylinder cars, Chevrolet introduced a new range powered by the famous 'Stovebolt' overhead-valve six in 1929, these highly popular six-cylinder Chevrolets helping General Motors' mainstay out-sell Ford for most of the 1930s. Chevrolets were redesigned for 1940 with a longer wheelbase and a more modern, all new body style, while the 'Special Deluxe' line-up - Chevrolet's best equipped and most expensive - was newly introduced for that year. Somewhat surprisingly, Chevrolets were restyled again for 1941, the last full year of production prior to the USA's entry into WW2, emerging longer, lower, wider and more streamlined. By this time the 'Cast Iron Wonder' had been extensively revised, being larger in capacity at 216.5ci (3,549cc) yet more compact and powerful at 90bhp.

    Restored at date unknown, this Special Deluxe Coupe has formed part of the world-famous Haynes International Motor Museum collection since its acquisition in 1995. Offered in need of re-commissioning following a lengthy period of static display, the car is described as in generally good condition; a weep from the brake master cylinder being the only fault notified. Sundry tools and spares come with car, which is offered with old-style logbook and V5 registration document.
