Here's a pic of a Panther Daytona at daytona beach. This is comes from an original 1954 factory 2 page flyer.
I understand that the original concept name was Gray Wolf II in honor of Packard's infamous 1903 Grey Wolf race car and the first vehicle originaly had the grey wolf inscription on the quarter panels, the name was changed to Panther Daytona, and that five vehicles as shown were built for the show circuit in 1954. One vehicle was supposedly destroyed in an accident. Of the remaining four cars, two were updated for 1955 with changes to the quarter panels to accept 1955 cathedral tail lights, revised hood with hood scoop, added air vents under the hood line, rebadged as Panther, not Panther Daytona, repainted in two tone variations with minor trim changes.
I understand all four vehicles still exist and are owned by private collectors.

I heard the same rumor, then called the Museum, they knew nothing about a Monte Carlo, they said they would check it out and call me back either way. That was two weeks ago and haven't heard a thing.
It would be nice if the private collector in Atlanta would share some pic's with us.

Robert,
Your welcome. It's a pleasure sharing Packard information with other enthusiasts. fyi, Cars & Parts Magazine, June 1972, Volume 15 No.9 has an iteresting 6 page article called "The Milestone Era 1945-1964", "Packard's Idea Cars" by Dick Langworth. It has small pics's of the 1957 proto-types such as Packard front view, Carbbean side view, Patician 7/8 front, Clipper side view,as well as 6 sketches of Bob Bourke's 1957 Packards, plus a nicely written article.
I understand that C&P still has a few of brand new back issues available for about $12.00 including S&H. I believe their phone number is 800-572-6885 (C&P is part of Amos Advantage).

Even if the Monte Carlo 2 is in rough shape it would be interesting to look at some pic's of it in it's current condition. Hopefully, you can post some pic's to this thread.

Brian,
The Packard article from the May 1953, "CARS MAGAZINE" was scanned and sent to BK today, Also a scan showing a 3/4 front view of the Monte Carlo (unfortunately the pic appeared on 2 pages and has a line running through it, not the best pic but worth looking at) was also e-mailed to BK. Hopefully, BK can convert and post these files to the this thread and the website.

Thanks for the welcome. Unfortunately at this time I do not a own a Packard. I'm sort of a Packard buff, my father used to be an executive at Packard and I inherited his love for Packard.

Brian,
I re-sent 4 pics to the custom and showcar file indicating replacement for the thumbnails of the (3)predictor and (1) panther daytona that I inadvertently sent thumbnails the first time. Hopefully, BK can delete these thumbnails. Also, I got fat fingered and sent a Balboa picture that is referenced Pan American. Sorry for any inconvenience.
I hope there are some more folks out there that can post some pic's of the Pan American, Monte Carlo I and II, Balboa, Grey Wolf II/ Panther Daytona, Predictor, as well as any other concepts for the Packard proposed 1957 and 1958 model years.

I'm just looking at my archive files and sending copies of pic's that may be of interest. If BK can advise me as to how to replace the thumb prints, I'll be happy to fix them.
