A Mystery Car

I visited a local model railroad club this past Friday and in the fenced in section of the basement next to the club were several older automobiles.
This one was next to the fence, but I can't figure out what it is.

The hood ornament looks a bit like an Indian head - maybe Pontiac? Or it maybe maybe a Dodge.

Here's one picture:

There are nine pictures in total here:

They were taken with a BlackBerry cell phone camera which only has an LED flash, so there's not much light.

The only thing for certain is the vehicle did not leave the original production line looking that way. It has been heavily stretched.

I am going by the side vents on the hood, the oval rear view mirror, the shape of the front door vent window and tail light and I think what you have there is a 36-37-38 Packard Henney Hearse.

The lines certainly seem a perfect match.

I know little of American cars, but some google image searches did suggest something by Packard. The lines seemed to match their style.
