Thanks. It looks like my observations were about right and no one has the complete story on this one. I agree with the comments that it was probably on the Packard chassis.
Swi, several of your latest pics look like the Paxton. Might be 1952? It was Porsche powered, only one built. I've been lucky enough to see it twice. The headlight buckets and bumpers are fiberglass and chrome plated, first time done.
The fifth pic. down, that scale model that has "starship Enterprise" rocket-pods on the rear wings, a British custom car builder called Steve Saunders, or maybe Andy Saunders, built a full size working version of it. I'll see if I can find a link.

My brother has one that my dad restored. It's a 1946 Mercury.
Studebaker made a wagon like this too, trying to save costs the rear doors would interchange side to side with the front doors.
Found the pic I had. Raymond Lowery was out and Brooks Stevens was in as the designer. Prototype wagon was built by Italian coachbuilder Sibona-Bassano for 16.5K! Maybe they built the sedan too, I don't know.
