The Chevrolet Deluxe was a trim line of Chevrolet automobiles, marked from 1941 to 1952, and was the volume sales leader for the marque during the 1940s. The line included, at first a 4-door sedan, but grew to include a fastback 2-door “aerosedan” and other body styles. The 1941 Chevrolet was the first generation that didn’t share a common appearance with Chevrolet trucks, while the Chevrolet AK Series truck did share common internal components.

The original series ran from 1941 to 1948, after which a new body style was introduced for 1949, running through 1952. During the post-war years and continuing through the early 1950s, the Deluxe range was Chevrolet’s sales leader, offering a balance of style and luxury appointments unavailable in the base Special series; and a wider range of body styles.

The windshield through 1952 was of a split, flat-glass type. The wipers were vacuum actuated. Chevrolet offered windshield washers on some years. Throughout the post-war years, many comfort, convenience and styling options were available, including tinted glass which was introduced in 1952, the final year of this style. Popular Mechanics rated fuel economy of 20 mpg at 50 mph. After the end of the 1952 model year, the old nameplates -Special Deluxe- were retired, and changed to 150 and 210, respectively, with trim similar to their respective former series.
