New $6000 interior - the door panels look nice but is that door panel correct style for the 61 Chrysler model line ?

Those door panels look like they are the correct pattern for a 1960 Dodge not Chrysler.

Good catch (maybe?)

I believe Canadian 61 Chryslers used the 60 Dodge pattern. Anyway, I prefer the 60 Dodge style over the boring US-build 61s door panels. "Great car for a resto-mod/Hellcat engine" makes me cringe. Hopefully someone sensible buys the car from this jerk. It's a fair price.

Yes, the door panels and seats are correct for this car, which is a Canadian production 61 Windsor. It used identical upholstery on the seats tothe 1961 Dodge Polara, and the door panels are identical to those used on the 1960 Dodge Matador and the 60 Canadian built Polara.

This is a very honest car, was owned many years by a Forward Look member here,Ray Bohn.

Thanks for clearing that up Ian. I couldn't find anything in the various brochure websites yesterday. Found this Canadian 59 Chrysler Windsor page today. Looks pretty splashy:

I owned a 59 Windsor 2 door hardtop 1980-82. Upholstery is identical to the 59 Custom Royal Canadian version.

Figured that someone would know for certain if the the interior was correct for that model. I just noticed that the interior was the 1960 Dodge pattern which wasn’t the normal style usually seen in a 61 Chrysler.

It’s both fascinating and a little confusing trying to understand all of the different combinations that were “mixed” between Chrysler- Plymouth & Dodge models for the Canadian market.

It is beyond comprehension why they did it in the first place. The logistical
costs had to be staggering, cost savings little-zero. And all for what ???
