The '41s were not blackout cars, but the late '42s were. The trim on this car is merely deteriorated. The grille and things like the parking lights, headlamps, fender trim ornaments, and taillight housings were pot metal that was chromed. The trim strips along the sides of the body are stainless. The pot metal is always deteriorated on these cars, and the bumpers, while steel, were plated with production chrome that rarely looks as good as what we now expect from our platers, even in perfectly preserved condition.

This is a highly desirable car that appears to be complete and in good condition.
