By 1942 one out of every four american cars was a chevrolet, so it was big news when for that model year a fastback two-door model called the fleetline aerosedan joined the lineup. Lowrer at the roofline than any other 1942 chevy, this streamlined vehicle retains a surprisingly contemporary look

the aerosedan was based on the 1941 fleetline sedan introduced at midyear. This was a four-door sedan stretched low on its 116-in. Wheelbase, with the rear quarter windows eliminated so that they did not interfere with the tapered roofline. Like its predecessor, the aerosedan was given special deluxe trim, including deluxe steering wheel with horn ring, chrome hood nameplates and front-door arm rests. A distinguishing aerosedan feature consisted of triple steel bands on the lower part of the front and rear fenders.
