The differences in body styles are slight, but apparent in this photo. Note the smaller rear quarter windows and longer decklid on the black '46 Business Coupe, as opposed to the longer roofline on the red '48 Club Coupe.
One of the few modifications performed on either car is a set of dual exhausts Patterson installed on the '46, using a home-built split exhaust manifold and steelpack mufflers. The car purrs like a contented jaguar.
The dashboards are almost identical in the two cars, with vertical Motorola brand radios in the center and push-button starter controls at the left-hand side. The red coupe has add-on turn signals, with a pair of underdash green and red lights to show which blinker is blinking.
