I have been curious what a 240 would look like with the front arches cut from some fenders and welded into the rear at the same height as the stock fenders. Basically matched arches.

It looks like Robbie Tice's car. I think it's for sale still.

I don’t think you can “match” them perfectly as the rear would have to start the flare pretty much at or just below the belt line. Maybe possible with the 2 door; then I don’t think it would be more better than the charcoal 242 previously cited. In the case of the Mann 245/164 I referenced, I think he shows well that you can even do it to a 4 door. It’s still lower that the front arches, but an improvement none the less.
