Starts with a Cadillac, and ends with a Packard, but I can't tell the brands in between.

ED: Probably a government spec build-up similar to when the 1,300+ 1953-1954 REO "Calamity Janes" were built-up here for the Civil Defense. Swift & Boyertown where the two body builders, but virtually no difference in their appearance. MM
