That must be Macauley's Brown Bomber. I have a lot of mixed feelings about that car, at leats inits final form, but not as much as the what he had done Pan American #1, after it was sold to him.

Thankfully, other unmolested examples of the PanAm survive, and I have been fortunate enough to see two of them.

I much prefer Macauley's '52 Speedster to the Bomber, except for the Torqueflite conversion that somebody later did to it. While I undertand the want of an automatic upshift, you'd think that, for such a historic one-of-a-kind vehicle, they would have opted for an upgrade to a Gear Start Ultramatic to keep it in the spirit of Packard.

Also, Carl Schnieder's Packard Pacifica seems to have been based on one of Macauley's other visions.

Does anyone have any good shots of the 1952 Packard Pinin Farina Coupe from when it was debuted in 1952?

I think it is currently in the Packard Museum in Dayton, or at least a tribute copy of it is.

That car has always been one of my favorites.

Was the "Brown Bomber" a Darrin design? It has that "Darrin Dip" style.

BigKev -

I don't believe you'll ever find a bona fide photo from 1952 of the silver Packard fastback coupe that bears the "pininfarina" script.

Reason is that car was never built by Packard.

However, Carl Schneider, of Eureka, CA, found and purchased a set of Pininfarina renderings for this car at the R?tromobile show in Paris, France (Europe's answer to Pebble Beach?) back in the early 1990s. He later commisioned a fabricator to buid this fastback coupe (dubbed the "Parisian"), plus two other concepts that Packard never went built.

I understand that a limited run of just 20 models of the Pininfarina/Parisian in 1:43 scale die-cast was also produced back in 2005.
