Saw this photo on Facebook and thought I would share. Interesting use of a Packard grille. Wonder who built this. Looks like a lot of time and effort went into it.

Maybe no one. It looks very AI-generated to me.

It's not AI. If you Google Image search that photo, there are multiple shots of it and different angles, places and dates.

The Clipper grille is stuck in the tall hood of a postwar Flxible-Buick ambulance/hearse that has been converted to a truck. Flxible was a professional car coachbuilder in Loudonville, Ohio that had an exclusive contract with Buick much as Packard had with Henney. A hallmark of their work was to add section height to the overall build, note the height of the hood sides compared to any Buick of those years. The idea was to make the body more commodious for the ambulance applications.

Proud 1953 Clipper Deluxe owner. Thinking about my next Packard, want a Clipper Deluxe Eight, manual shift with overdrive.

Flxible busses are still fairly common.
