Chevrolet Special Deluxe - my grandfather

Greetings all, 

 

I'm more of a Packard man than a Chevrolet guy, but I'm intrigued by this photo of my grandfather. I know it's a Chevrolet Special Deluxe coupe, but is there any way to be sure of the year? My gut says 1941 but, again, I'm not really a Chevrolet guy. Is there a way to tell for sure from this angle? 

 

I'd like to add one of these to the fleet eventually.

 

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it's a '41, the best looking Chevrolet of the decade imo. 

Outstanding, thank you. I've been keeping a casual eye out for one but, sadly, a lot of modified dreck comes up. Hopefully I can find a stock one eventually.

They come up for sale occasionally.   I would think a realistic price range for a decent to nice one is 15-25G.  That would be turn key and presentable.  If serious,  post a wanted ad here and we'll help find you one.   Lots of members all over the country here that would be happy to keep an eye out.

I will definitely do that when I'm ready to seriously pursue one. Thanks for the tip!

Here are a couple I've photographed over the years. Both are loaded with accessories. According to my notes the blue one is a "Special DeLuxe", the red one is a "Master DeLuxe".
