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?.....it looks untampered.

I'm ok with it cuz I like the pre-41 running boards, i'm just baffled.
It could be a early 41 where they were using up parts from the 40. Some guys have a 47 Ford, but have parts on it from 46, that will only fit the 46 and the first 47's. the 47 Ford did not get all the changes until march of 47. Chev might have done the same. You might be able to google it to find out.
