Looks ok from the outside but the interior is killing me! They took out the 'Astrodome' instrument cluster! Why?! I'm not a purist by any means, and I get it if they were going to use it for racing or something, but the gauges they replaced it with are almost the same gauges that are in the cluster anyways. The speedometer isn't even any bigger, it goes up to 120 just like the original would have! The gauges on the 60-61's are almost as important as the fins when it comes to the design of the car. Probably the most unique instrument panel of any car ever made except maybe the rolling dome on the 58 Edsels or the transparent Desoto/Dodge speedometers in 61.

Totally awful looking interior for a 61 Chrysler.

This car belongs in Australia... I AM THE NIGHT RIDER!!!

Even has the classic 1980's Sherwood cassette deck... that is old school cool.
