Sherpa doors are even more wonky; they're only that shape as that's the shape of the J4's doors, the rough clay of which, melded with leftover bits of Oxfords and MGBs, the mighty Sherpa was hewn.

In all my years of fucking owning the bastards I never noticed. You can thank @vulgalour for ruining everything.

The rear passenger doors on the old Porsche Panamera.  Awkward reverse angles make it look like an expensive take on the Ford Anglia / Consul 315

Except the Anglebox never had rear passenger doors.  But ISWYM... 😉

The rear door window frames of the Volvo 200 Series estate car:

The black paint on the later models makes the shape of the frames less obvious, but even so...

I believe it was designed as a saloon and the estate was an add on to the range.
