I don't know much about prewars but the 42 acc databook mentions 4 antenna options. The running board and cowl antenna are the only ones mentioned for convertibles. 3 photos from the archive would seem to fit the suggested cowl antenna type but I can't say if all are correct since there does appear to be differences but the location on all would seem to be the one mentioned in the antenna description. I imagine the actual height placement could vary a bit if the driver preferred as long as it landed in the general area suggested.
