Don't know if it's been already mentioned, but I would think it could be described as a shooting brake.

In relation to Rover, also quoted from page one:

Rover didn’t build a production estate car until the 75. However, in the early 70s British Leyland dealers sold about 160 P6 which had been converted by FLM Panelcraft. Notice how the side windows follow the original rear wing line, something Ogle managed to avoid with the GT/E.
A couple of months ago, at one of the Southern Classics Breakfast Meets, one of the P6 3500S "Estoura" cars turned up. This was one of only eight manual V8 cars produced.

I love shooting brakes. A bit modern for me but this was the best of its type I've owned. Probably about as rust prone as the SD1.
