I remember a few years ago there was a website called 1956packardpanther.com about a Panther project and it also featured a 1956 Packard Executive built by a man named Paul who I believe lives in Las Vegas. Anyone know what become of the Panther project or the Executive?

The Panther website and Panther project was done by Craig Hendrickson who passed about 3 years ago. The site stayed active for awhile after he was gone but presume the web hosting fees finally ran out and the site went away. Someone has found bits and pieces of the site info in internet archives but I have no idea how much is still available or if there is a special way to search.

I believe I remember Craig mentioning that there was an accident with the Executive and I think it was that someone hit the car and did extensive damage. Memory is fuzzy on details so will not state that as absolute fact. At any rate the damage was severe enough the car was essentially totaled and I think he said Paul did not have the desire to work on it or make another. Doing a search on this site may find more details as Craig made a post or two when it happened.

Boy that's sad to hear Paul really did an outstanding job building it.
