1947 Chevrolet Coupe
This 1947 Business needs a new way to let you know it’s coming. Our goal for this vehicle is to get the horn honking again. We’re also going to fix some minor issues with the interior door panel and get it an inspection sticker.

The 1946 Chevrolets began to roll off assembly lines on October 3, 1945, in minuscule numbers at first. There was a shortage of critical materials, notably sheet steel. Production had not yet resumed its normal pace when a United Auto Works strike was called on November 21. Assembly lines ground to a halt. Not until March 13, 1946, was the strike settled. Sixteen days later, Chevrolet became the first GM division to resume production.
There were new model names for 1946. The Master DeLuxe had become the Stylemaster, while the Special DeLuxe was renamed the Fleetmaster. The Fleetline continued as a Fleetmaster subseries. Body types were the same as before, except that there was no business coupe in the Fleetmaster series.
Apart from a new grille, the 1946 Chevrolet was virtually identical in appearance to the final prewar series, and there were no significant mechanical distinctions.
Grille and beltline moldings were further changed for 1947, by which time the Fleetline Aerosedan was once again Chevy’s volume leader, taking over from the 1946 Stylemaster Sport Sedan.
