Interesting rear on an 88

Is it just me or is the top on this different than most? Aside from the door appearing to open the wrong way and some other things, it looks almost like the truck cab rear-quarter panels with the curved windows was used - was that normal back then? Just curious.

I know Santana was licensed to make Rovers back in 1961, but like this one? I think they only assembled the CKDs until the mid sixties or so before making their own versions.

Maybe Jim Justice had it built before he moved up to a 110?

I had a Santana and it didn't look like that.
