Why not experiment on the other New Yorker with this idea.  If you screw it up, you won't have to live with it.
 
I like it though

Looking the side view, I think the proportions are off.  The combination of the extra tall fins with the huge C-pillar with tiny opera window makes it seem clunky there.
 
I'm thinking either start with a 4 door (bigger side glass) or change the roof to a second color.

Everyone's a critic.... 
It's just a fantasy excercise.  It ain't gonna happen.

I think it would be a very possible mutt project.
Find a 2 door Chrysler that is  not a landau roof.A 76 or 77 Newport even.The rear tailpanel will work better with the fins grafted on more than the NYB.
The front header panel can be removed and a fiberglass mock up of a 60 or 61 Chrysler can be made to bolt on.
A full size 74-78 Fury or Monaco hood can be adapted to fit for a more flat style hood.
A 70's van custom trick is design a cover over the rear quarter glass to match the swoop of the fins.Similar angle to the 67-68 fastop C's
Most 60 Chryslers that are rusted out still have good fins.
Locate a donor or make a fiberglass mold of the fins and front end treatments.HHHmmmm
