Just curious if anyone has ever combined two of the wildest looking Plymouths? I have a both 1960 and 1961 Plymouth 2 door sedans and was curious what it might look like to put the front clip of the 1961 onto the 1960 body. Anyone have picture of such a car? Can anybody photo shop one?

Putting the '60 on the '61 would be an improvement, not so much the other way around...

Where has forum member JT Vincent been lately? He did a few Frankenstein projects like that in the ‘90s. Not that combo specifically but he could probably tell you how/if it would fit together. Maybe prepare a nice rendering of what it would look like

I had both 1960 and 1961 parts cars when built my first 61 Fury street rod. The clips are directly interchangeable but they have to be swapped as complete fender/hood combinations due to the different hood seam locations. The inner fenders and radiator support are the same. If the same front stub frames are used on the other Mopar models, there are plenty of possibilities. Remember the Paul Garlick "Plodge" scandal where a 61 Fury front end was bolted onto a Dodge and peddled as a rare Canadian model? That was a unique combination looked OK.

Thanks John, I was hoping someone had enough photoshop skills to mock one up.
