The Plymouth Superbird and Dodge Daytona had something similar on its' A pillars. ( That is the chrome piece that you can see in the picture :

I found it interesting that they were removed when the car was run for top speed at Bonneville. Strange, since when raced on the speedways, they kept them on.

( The above picture is a poor example, but I saw a better picture that clearly showed that there was no chrome deflector there. )

I wonder if the visor style extention did anything good at all for aero. :

Thanks for posting this question - I've wondered the same thing for years.
