I like both cars very much but prefer the grille/headlights of the 61.

I have a slight preference for the 1961 based on family ownership.

Both represent a really great era for Chrysler styling! The "boomerang" taillights on the '60 seal the deal for me.

I love the aggressive front end of the '60 and how the headlight brows flow around and down the body into those amazing fins, a very cohesive look.  Oh yes, and those cool tail lights too!

Going with the 60.  I like those angle stacked headlights more on the 60 Lincoln and lil deuce coupe than on the 61 Chrysler.

I prefer the overall look of the '60. The tail lights can't be beat.

Here the '60 gets my vote, but as far as Chryslers of that period I prefer the '62, don't care for the Fins everybody else seems to like.

@brush, I'm with you. I don't mind them as much. But, by '61, the fins were fading fast and it seemed Chrysler was desperately holding on to them.

It is odd indeed that the 61 Chrysler retained its big fins considering the rest of the Chryco line lost them.  You would have thought the 62 Chrysler look would have shown up in 61.

I like both years a lot, but when all else fails the FINS of the '60 CHRYSLER can't be topped.  I vote '60.
