Everything will bolt and snap on.
You'll also need the radiator cover/crossmember and headlights.

Oh Noes!!!! That's not good Eals!

Sorry you hit something... Good choice on modding a 300m front clip onto it.

Got pictures of the carnage?

You *can* do it but aside from looking like a half-assed repair job the Intrepid parts are 10x easier to come by.

Good point; 300M's don't show up in the wrecking yard until they have been wrecked
or they have 250,000+ miles on them.

And why is that?
Maybe because Chrysler only offered the 300M with the 3.5L.

I don't hit yards very often, but I see 300ms in the yards every time I go...

Sure, they're there but the number of Treps and Cordes far exceed the number of 300's.

All it takes is one with a good front clip...

Just recently someone did this - or talked about it, but I don't recall who or if they completed...

Having seen your car in person, I can't wait to see what you come up with for a final product.

Here is the thread, you were talking about, and it includes pictures of this being done.

Where the fenders and front doors meet aren't contoured the same, but, yeah, will fit.

We had a local who was creating a shark mouth 300m from a Concorde front end and m body. I think those matched up pretty well at the door front edge.

Another guy was talking about doing this when he buys one of my 300m's. But, I don't think he has the skills.
