Good Day All -

Here's an advertisement from the October 1968 issue of Flight Magazine ( A U.S. gen av magazine, NOT Flight International) that pitches a corporate version of the 16H Pathfinder.

Enjoy the Day! Mark

There was a semi-flush engine exhaust there in the actual Pathfinder 2. Maybe at this point in the design process, they thought they would need a duct to direct the exhaust clear of the pusher fan.

Edit: Actually, you can see it in this picture of the real machine. It's an aerodynamically shaped exhaust pipe. Looks a bit shorter than in the drawing. But then so does the whole vehicle -- the drawing is pretty distorted compared to what was actually built.
