I attended the National Hobo Days car show in Britt Iowa a couple of weeks ago and the local paper wrote this article.

Perhaps it is the angle, lighting etc., but the black portion of the paint scheme on the panel looks similar to the inverted trapezoid side/rear window on the Gremlin.  The black outline seems to indicate they were trying to unify the actual side window on the Pinto wagon and a faux window that was painted (or decal?) on.  I never noticed this before.

  I did a Google search of cruise wagons and found a few that were solid color. The side windows does look rather abrupt, square and somewhat small (in comparison to the rear panel) with the port hole looking too far rearward.
