This photo was posted by Alan M on the AACA Forum to identify the car. The gentleman was Alan M’s wife’s uncle. Here is his biography and photo, both with permission of the family.

“Charles S.(Buck)Huppmann was my uncle, born 24 Feb.1920 and killed in action on 23 Jan. 1944 on a bombing run over Burma. He flew 40 missions during the war and his orders to return home arrived the day after he was shot down. Buck was from Baltimore and one of nine children. He enlisted after two years of college at Johns Hopkins. I don't think there is any way that this Packard was his car but rather belonged to a friend while he was in flight school in Texas in 1941-42. Then again, it may just have been a car that he chose to pose in front of!”

We hope that Charles got to enjoy that fine ‘37 120 convertible on nice days. It is good to remember him now for his great service and sacrifice for our nation.

This just appeared on the Hemmings Daily Blog in their Car-Spotter series, its San Francisco, Ellis and Taylor Streets, March 1958. Pretty yellow and white '55 Patrician, the 22nd Series Eight at the Chevron station looks tired.

This is a prefect example of a car that was for sale on CL and other venues for a long time with no takers. No one need cry he didn't have a chance to save it from a customizer. Those guys are on the lookout for unusual cars that are cheap raw material, many 22nd-23rd Series cars are that.

The worst problem with chopped tops is they make an already bottom-heavy looking car even more so. To his credit, he is a skilled metal worker that appears to have the job quite well. The generic powertrain is typical, makes for a far less interesting custom. If someone designed a proportionally attractive car, this fellow could do a nice job building it.
