Chevrolet Rooftop Luggage Carrier Inquiry...

Picked this up recently as I thought to use it on a Corvan or Greenbrier with a roof rack.
I know it's not a legitimate FC accessory but I'm sure at least one of our Chevy parts pro's remember it and can tell me the period and/or which GM vehicle these were designed for?

It measures; 47"L×38"W×15"H

Thanks,Thomas

I have owned the same carrier (paid $1 for it at a garage sale in 2004ish).

I didn't like the way it looked on my '64 Greenbrier - I believe, at the time, I found out it was full-sized Chevy Wagon, late 60's.

Made by Karpak. They’re in the camper accessory booklet. Catalogs on eBay from time to time. I have a three shield Buick and a black ford one

Oh. So not actually manufactured by GM?
I'd like to see the literature/booklet someday.
