Also, an important design detail is missing: curved side glass...*PIC*...
Not a detail that you can point to directly, it's one element of many that combine
to an exquisite overall design.

When the windows are closed, the chrome trim on the glass exposes the curve. See this photo:

For 1964, the wheelbase and length were added to, the roof was widened and the side windows were replaced with flat glass. Oh well.

Sometimes beauty needs to be destroyed to be appreciated.
