Every Bambi have a front upper shelf?

I have a 1961 bambi without an upper shelf above the front window. The lower shelf is there but no upper. Did every bambi have this shelf originally? I could make one if it was original. Does the upper shelf extend out from the wall the same amount as the lower shelf? Why would people remove it, hitting their head when they sit? I've seen pictures both ways. Thanks!

Our '62 does not have an upper shelf. ours has a shelf just under the front window that supports the front couch back.

The upper shelf was not a factory standard for 1961 and 1962. It was added in 1963.

My '61 Safari had the upper shelf from the factory, so they were doing it at least in some models in 1961.

This is a pic of our 61 Bambi front end the day we got it home. It has the original upper shelf and lower shelf.

We have a 1963 Bambi and we have a upper shelf.... I find it quite useful, so if you want one, I would install it!

We have a 63 "Ohio Built" with no shelf. There was never one installed since Day 1. Could it have been an option, or maybe a difference between CA and OH?
