The one with the sloping roof looks to have taken a lot of its inspiration from late-'40s Cadillac Sedanettes and Buick Roadmasters.

I guess it all comes full circle, though, because the squared-off roofline of a Bentley or RR inspired Bill Mitchell to pen the Buick Silver Arrow I concept which became the Riviera, one of the best looking cars of its age.

You mean H.J. Mulliner's Continental Coupé? This isn't the first cars with that type of body, the R-Type Continental was already available with a similar bodystyle, altough I don't know wheter back then H.J. Mulliner got the inspiration from US cars or not.

Yes, the R-Type was still from the early '50s, though, so they had a few years to see the late-'40s GM luxury offerings. It would be an interesting pollination of ideas that goes contrary to the norm if it actually is the case.

EDIT: I am a wrong; back in those days it probably was going in that direction, and the other way is a more modern phenomenon.
