The 1952 Kaiser Virginia DeLuxe was the upper-priced series in Kaiser's interim 1952 line, announced at the start of the model year. Composed of leftover 1951s with new serial numbers and badges, it was withdrawn after the "genuine" 1952s were ready. Most came with a standard "continental" exterior-mount spare tire.
