Divided basket bunkers were basically two separate bunkers in the space of the normal bunker which allowed more evaporation surface for the melting ice and hence faster

Ones I have seen did not impact the roof details, but that’s not a definitive answer.

I believe a divided basket means the bunker can be fully filled or half filled, my folding down a “shelf” in the bunker.

Thanks for posting an interesting car. 
What is a "Divided Basket Bunker"? Would that impact the roof details? Thanks.
