Hi

Here's how the body-side trim breaks down, all on 127" wb except for lwb models.

1948-'49 22nd Series Custom Eights, double, axle-level strips, eggcrate grilles front and rear, flush rectangular taillights carried over from the 21st Series Clipper. 356 ci engine.

1949-'50 23nd Series Customs and Super Deluxes; single, mid-body strip, eggcrate grilles front and read, oval taillights in chrome housings with side reflectors.
Customs: 356 ci engine
Super Deluxes: 327 ci engine.

1949-'50 Supers, single, mid-body strip, heavy 3-bar upper grille front, oval taillights in chrome housings with side reflectors.
Super: 327 ci engine.

PS: Only the Customs had the trunk-lid encircling chrome trim.
