In 1941 Chevrolet introduced the Master Deluxe and Special Deluxe. These models were fabulously good looking, substantially bigger and more impressive than before. For the third time it was fully restyled by Harley Earl's "Styling Section" of General Motors. Wheelbase of the 1941 Chevrolet Master Deluxe and Special Deluxe was stretched to 116 inches. Overall length was 1953/4 inches, an increase of 31/2 inches, and weight was up by a hundred pounds or so. Interior space was substantially greater, providing three inches of additional hip room. Running boards were concealed and headlamps were blended into the fenders. The engine of the 1941 Chevrolet Master Deluxe and Special Deluxe was heavily revised. A redesigned cylinder head and new pistons with a slightly higher (6.5:1) compression ratio raised horsepower from 85 to 90. Valves, rocker arms, and water pump were also reworked. The revised 1941 Chevrolet Master Deluxe and Special Deluxe engine was called the "Victory Six", Influenced by the nation's preoccupation with the war raging in Europe.
