Apparently the screen is broken out.

There is no screen in my '46 or the fully restored '42 an acquaintance owns. The screen may not have been part of the assembly until the AD trucks.

Looks to be a sheet baffle not a screen, this is from a 1939 Filmstrip.

'Bolter screen on my 37 but my 52 panel had one..... I believe someone above mentioned no screen until AD trucks.

edit: and yes, I've had a few bugs pop inside the cab but at 75-80 mph very few lived to tell it.

That is odd. My 38 car has a screen.
