Default "V- Notch" on the top of cab doors

I was messing around with the truck today and just noticed that both doors have a v-notch on the top of each door. The wide part of the v faces in. There is no matching fitting on the cab at that point.
What is the "V" for? I don't think Henry did anything without a purpose.
Thanks Ned

Are you referring to the notch that holds the rubber bumper in the top of the doors?

I didn't know what it was for but that must be it. Thanks. Ned
