Chevrolet Fleetmaster

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Chevrolet Fleetmaster is an automobile which was produced by Chevrolet in the United States for the 1946, 1947 and 1948 model years.[1] The Fleetmaster series included the Fleetline sub-series which was offered only in 2-door and 4-door "fastback" bodystyles.[1]

The Series DK Fleetmaster was introduced as the top trim level model in the 1946 Chevrolet range, along with the lower level Series DJ Chevrolet Stylemaster.[1] The Fleetmaster, which replaced the "prewar" Chevrolet Special Deluxe,[1] was powered by a 216.5 cu in (3.5 L) Straight-six engine driving through a 3 speed manual transmission.[1] It was offered in 2-door Town Sedan, 4-door Sport Sedan, 2-door Sports Coupe, 2-door Convertible and 4-door Station Wagon models.[1] A Fleetline sub-series was available as the 2-door Aero Sedan and 4-door Sport Master Sedan, both of which featured "fastback" styling and additional triple mouldings on all fenders.[1]

The 1947 Series 2100 EK Fleetmaster was little changed from its predecessor, the most notable visual difference being a new radiator grille with a more horizontal theme.[1]

1948

The 1948 Series 2100 FK Fleetmaster was again little changed from the previous year.[1] There were no significant body alterations, however the radiator grille featured a vertical centre bar.[1]

Replacement

For the 1949 model year the Fleetmaster was replaced by the 2100 GK Series Chevrolet Deluxe, offered in Styleline and Fleetline sub-series.[1]

The Chevrolet Fleetmaster was also produced by General Motors-Holden's in Australia.[2] As Holden had carried over the body tooling from its 1942 models, the Australian sedan differed from its US counterpart in having a different body with rear-hinged back doors and a larger trunk.[3] The grilles fitted to the Australian models were the same as those used on the US models.[4] Australian Fleetmasters were produced in 1946, 1947 and 1948 models.[2]
