Vintage Ad: 1942 Chevrolet 15 Passenger War Worker’s Coach – “Replaces Twelve Private Cars”

One of the less obvious challenges of WW2 was the transport of war workers. New plants were popping up everywhere, and workers were moving all over the country as a consequence. But many didn’t have cars, contrary to popular assumptions, especially single women. And gas was rationed, as well as rubber.

So all kinds of solutions were improvised, including the Chevy 15 passenger coach, by Fitzjohn. It took some creative and dense seating to make that happen.

Here’s a crop of the ad, to better see just how that was done. Cozy! Hopefully nobody had gas,
