I don't see a bezel for the power antenna either but if you have an original in halfway decent shape good enough for a pattern at least, you might contact Lavine Restorations and see if they would be interested in adding it to their repro collection.

If you cannot get the extended antenna out and you are able to reach up and access the antenna body you could probably follow these instructions Packard made on shipping damaged units. I believe the aluminum tube they are suggesting removing to pull on the nylon strip is just held on by a nut-- similar to how fuel lines connect. I think by 53 or 54 the tubes were in a coiled circle rather than a large oval.
