* Beginning in 1941, the line expanded to "Special" (6 cylinder), "Deluxe" (formely Standard)
& "Super Deluxe" (formerly Deluxe)

From 1932-1937 all cars were "Standard" models, although most were offered as "Deluxe" models. Deluxe models had added trim & upholstery options, including cowl lamps & dual tail lights. Starting in 1938, "Standard" & "Deluxe" became separate & distinct lines.
