According to the article in The Packard Cormorant #131 (Summer 2008, page 28), the builder of the "1933"-looking car was 2nd Chance Classis in Gibbon, Nebraska. Dwight Bond was the fellow who started the company in 1985. He closed up shop in 2000 after 46 Coupe-Roadsters, 3 Victorias and 5 Limousines were built.

Yes, "2nd Chance", thanks for the memory jog. The fiberglass body panels, or at least some of them, interchange quite well with the originals.

It is copyright-protected so the best way is to join PAC and buy the back issue. Club membership will add greatly to your enjoyment of the car. And there are hundreds of Packard owners in Sweden and the other Nordic countries, so you could probably join the Nordic Packard Owner's Club and no doubt some of them would have the article you want.
