41 Chevy with no rocker panels

I posted a question yesterday about running board ideas for my 41 coupe and Centerline suggested just replacing the rockers. I thought about it but after some research looking at other 41 Chevys, it appears that replacing the bulge type rocker panels is out of the question.

Look at my doors......They are not 41 coupe doors, there is no bulge at the bottom

My door bottoms are factory straight down.....and they appear to be original, the doors, jambs and interior paint all match, it appears to be the original dark burgundy paint.

So whats going on here?.....1940 car with 41 vin tag? looks untampered.

I'm ok with it cuz I like the pre-41 running boards, i'm just baffled.
