Default 1940 "standard" Fordor dome lamp(s)

Guys, how many dome lamps were fitted to a 1940 "standard" Fordor sedan?

Thanks!

The Deluxe models had one on each B pillar. Total of two.
So, in your opinion, the so called "standard" model Fordor also had a total of two lamps?

1939 RHD sedans had the switch on the left .
According to Gary Mallast there was a dome lamp on either side.

Still searching for an answer to my question: How many dome lamps were fitted to a 1940 Ford "standard" Fordor?" Anyone?

I should have clarified my answer by saying "they had one on each pillar post just like the deluxe cars."

The salesmans manual page 11 reads: Rear compartment lamps in the two Sedans are located on the door pillars with switch on the right-hand side.
