Thanks for help to G. Marshall Naul (Maryland, USA), owner of black 4-door C2 in 1941-1942.
His memories about this car seemed very interesting to me:
"The steering wheel was nearly vertical but the rake was adjustable to some extent but only by removing bolts from the support behind the instrument panel. Two doors in instrument panel opening what were called glove compartments. Also two cranks to adjust the opening of the split windshield. Two small ash trays in instrument panel and two wiper adjustments above the split windshield. Two hood vents one on each side of the split windshield. Starter was operated by a chrome-plated push button above ignition key. Two large circular glass-covered panels in the middle of instrument panel containing speedometer and odometer and other readings.
The instrument panel was quite spectacular as it was considerably longer than most of that era, and the background was a synthetic woodgrain of some sort.
