Default 1941 sedan upper radiator air deflector

does anyone have a drawing of a template, or picture, they can post of an air deflector that will force all incoming air into the radiator of a 1941 sedan?
Thank you.

Is this deflector unique to the Sedan model?

most guys i have seen do the gap between the radiator and the hood latch plate with stainless sheet. my 41 olds had alot of side space also and i took extra stainless sheet and made sides aimed from wide at the front to right at the sides of the radiator. after doing this the car never overheats even in stop and go driving. i even do parades now something i never would have tried before.

If it's the same as a 42-48, and you want a picture with some measurements I have one off of a 47 right now.

Methinks sedans, coupes, convertibles are all the same; pickup truck is different.

The 1941 year has a grille shape that is unique to that year. The catalogues have a deflector for the 46-48" but not 41's.
