Anyone knows who designed and/or built this peculiar Packard revival?

There was an article on this car in the early nineties in - I think - Classic Cars mag.
The author had no idea who'd built it back then, but in a next issue a reader had a suggestion.
I can't remember which coachbuilder was mentioned, but it was a local and small one.

There have been many suggestions as to who made the body for this chassis. For a long time it was put forward as Farina, because it looks the tiniest bit like a body on a Jowett (but also because it is name with more cachet...). Abbott and Richard Mead have also been proposed, but maybe the likeliest candidate is Maurice Gomm. Who knows? Nobody seems to know any more, and it may need a photograph of the car emerging new from the works to be found if we are ever to find out.

By the way, it actually looks rather better "in the metal" than this photograph suggests.

I once saved it as "1947 Bertone Riley RM". Don't know if this is reliable, but at least you find something more about it on the internet.

According John Price Williams 's book Riley : The Legendary RMs, FLM Panelcraft is also a ( strong ) possibility.
