I dunno, but I'd be interested to see what it looks like on the car. Might look nice with a Monza style nose.

It looks like it would give it a VW bug look.

From the rather square corners on the front and the flat roof, I would guess that it was someone's dream from the '60s.
Nightmare might be more correct. In the UK several tops were made that covered the back end but had smoother lines, rounded edges, and bigger/more window area than this one.
