The Chevrolet Standard Six (Series DC) was launched in 1933, initially as the Chevrolet Mercury, by Chevrolet as a lower priced alternative to the 1932 Chevrolet Series BA Confederate that became the Eagle in 1933 and Master from 1934.

It was advertised as the cheapest six-cylinder enclosed car on the market.

The Standard was offered in three body styles all on a 107-inch wheelbase: coach, coupe and coupe with rumble seat.

All bodies were by Fisher and featured ‘no-draft ventilation’. All models were powered by a 181 cu in (2,970 cc) six-cylinder valve-in-head engine producing 60 bhp (45 kW; 61 PS) at 3,000 rpm and 125 lb⋅ft (169 N⋅m) of torque giving the car a top speed of between 65–70 mph.

This engine had first appeared in a Chevrolet in 1928. The car had full instrumentation.

A clock, heater and a radio were options. In 1935, a larger 206.8 cu in (3,389 cc) six-cylinder engine was offered in lieu of the 181 cu in (2,970 cc), producing 74 bhp at 3,200 rpm and 150 lb⋅ft of torque.

For 1936, the Standard Six received a wide range of improvements and a wider choice of body styles including cabriolet and sports sedan versions.

It was built on a new box-girder frame with a wheel base of 109 inches.

With an increase of compression ratio from 5.6:1 to 6:1, the standard 206.8 cu in (3,389 cc) engine now produced 79 bhp (59 kW; 80 PS) at 3,200 rpm and 156 lb⋅ft (212 N⋅m) of torque which was now shared with the Master Six.

The spare wheel moved from its external rear trunk location to a new compartment under the trunk. Brakes were 11-in drums. The steel roof was new.

The Standard Six was discontinued for 1937 when the Master range was joined by the new Master Deluxe.
