The four original 1954 Packard Panthers had fibreglass custom bodies. The first two were different than the last two primarily in the rear end treatment, i.e., "sore thumb" taillights vs "Cathedral" taillights. The first one was supercharged and the last one had a removeable hardtop and a hood scoop. One even had bucket seats rather than a bench seat. There is a lot of latitude for differences to implement on my 1956 Panther!
Other pages on this website document and describe the mechanical differences I have or
will implement. This set of pages discuss the "custom" changes to the body.
