Plenty of cars from this era were capable of high speeds without it, was this person just lazy or wanted to be unique?

This
The amount of drag/turbulence caused by open wheels in F1 is drastic.

I remember hearing some tidbit about a NASCAR team during the "golden days" when a team showed up a monocoque that covered the entire wheel well. People laughed at them wondering how they were going to change tires. After qualifying they just took a saw and cut out the wheel well and replaced the tires.

If they managed high speeds without it, imagine even higher speeds with it.

Not sure which golden days you're talking about (as if they had a custom body shell, it was clearly past the era of actual stock car racing), but the Hudson Hornet did have enclosed fender skirts and it basically dominated NASCAR the years it was entered.

You bet your arse it was, the Hornet was the car that dethroned the Olds 88's winning streak in stock car racing.

the front cut outs are like on Ferrari 250 TestaRossa
some other cars have it too
Speed Shop Shinohara S30z
autozam az 1 type c

its not too steeply angled
real issue with that kind of roof shape is to avoid lift
for lower drag a long tail is more effective but they are sort of banned at the moment

it also has a really low centre of gravity compared to other cars at the time
good engine too
I first learned of the Hudson hornet at burger king
they used to have all sorts of old posters

Well we are all different people with different likes and dislikes... Those who dislike something and are looking to start shit are more vocal than most others.

I don't care man, I just like cars.
Small cars, big cars, lots of cylinders, few cylinders, NA supercharged turbo I don't care... I just like em all

Increased drag coefficient =/= drag
so long as it's useful of coarse.
downforce is a big player in cornering and even high speed driving in the straights.

one drag just slows you down
the other slows you down but also pushes you against the ground for more grippu
