There's roughly 9" of extra length between the A-pillar and the front crossmember.

Hi

There was a 164 front end put on a 142 rear here in australia. The conversion was done by a body shop. It involved cutting a 164 through the floor under the front seats and the winscreen pillars and connecting it to a 142 rear. I can't find the web site any more or the car

Here is a link to 164 front put on a 145 rear. This one was done fitting a 164 chassis rails and inner guards on a 145 body firewall

Here is the link

Why do all the work? There are so many cars out there that are perfectly sexy just like they are.

In the grand scheme of things it's probably a little easier to put 142 doors and B-pillar/quarter panels on a 164.
