Couple questions~ Why does this appear to have removable panels from outside? How can it still be located at original FH and they not realize landau irons are on wrong sides?

Panels are removable. Apparently this is actually a combination. As for the bars, my guess is when they painted the top and panels what appears to be gloss black, they put them back on wrong and just never noticed....

Link is to portion of site I do not have access too, thanks though Adam. Didn't appear to have jump seats folded down in CL shot provided from open rear loading door. So rear inner panels are not stock or removable..?

As we've discussed before, there were many combinations that were later converted to "straight landau" hearses by leaving the external removable panels in place, installing new interior panels over the windows, and redoing the floor to eliminate the jump seats. Not only did it freshen the car's appearance, but after the "EMS era" started, there was often little need or desire for someone to own a combination. Some of these had vinyl roof material applied over the removable landau panels. And sometimes, the glass is still inside.

As for the landau bars, it's not so much that they didn't notice, it's probably that they didn't care.
