The Chevrolet Series FB (or Chevrolet FB) is an American vehicle manufactured by General Motors' Chevrolet division from 1919 to 1922. It was a slightly larger replacement to the 1918 Chevrolet Series FA, sitting on a wheelbase of 110 in (2,794 mm) compared to 108 in (2,743 mm). It was replaced by the 1923 Chevrolet Superior.
The Series FB was advertised as the FB-12 and FB-20 (roadster), FB-22 and FB-30 (coupe), FB-40 and FB-42 (sedan) and FB-32 and FB-50 (touring). The roadster was also sometimes known as the "Royal Mail" and the tourer as the "Baby Grand", but these names were official dropped during 1919.
During 1922 the model was sometimes referred to as the "Superior", which is the name given to the 1923 replacement.
Available in four body styles; two-door roadster and coupe and four-door tourer and sedan. The FB continued in production without many changes, the most significant in 1922 with a change to steel wheels in lieu of wood spoke ones, and larger 10gal fuel tank.
