Production Figures for 1948 Fleetmaster 48-1027


GM resumed its production of cars in October of 1945 when the war ended. A scarcity of passenger cars in the market opened up an opportunity for Chevrolet to reintroduce three of its vehicles: Stylemaster Sedan and Coupe, Fleetline Aerosedan, and Fleetmaster, all of which used to be manufactured during the pre-World War II period.

The Fleetmaster was produced in 1946 (DK), 1947 (EK), and 1948 (FK), each coming with its own unique features each year. The Chevy Fleetmaster was available in sedan, coupe, convertible, and station-wagon models with “woody” bodies. Not only did Fleetmaster receive a warm welcome on American roadways, but it was also honored to lead the parade of racing cars in the Indianapolis 500 car race (also known as the Indy 500) in 1948.
