Tonneau (pronounced ta’-no) is an archaic term (originally from the French, roughly meaning cask, container, or cover) for an open rear passenger compartment on an automobile and, by extension, a body style incorporating such a compartment.:headbang:

The first 'tonneau covers' were those fabric covers like you see on classic open (not convertible - *open* ...) sports cars.

The term go re-used to label the soft and hard covers used on pickup truck beds as well ....
