This rear window really grabbed my imagination today for some unknown reason.

It's an oddity more than aerodynamic, and I like it.

The Silver Arrow was designed by former GM stylist Phil Wright, who envisioned the car of tomorrow as a sleek aerodynamic form. Many Silver Arrow features would be adopted industry wide by automakers in the late 1930s and postwar ’40s.
If I was not told otherwise, I would assume WW-1 tanks were also an influence.
