To quote 'The Godfather' In my experience.............
nothing is impossible. That said, that doesn't mean it will be easy - after all the guy in the movie given the 'impossible' task is killed.

A couple of things off the top. It is not easy to mix and match from different models, as there are just too many things that have to 'line up' to make it work.

I would say that your best bet is to rework the Dodge. To do so will require taking the car completely apart, taking it down to bare metal and then reshaping it with a combination of removing metal and reshaping with a Bondo type material. Then all you have to do is clean it up, repaint it and put it back together.

If it sounds like a bit of work that's because it is.

I have to admit I'm not well versed on these actual models but whenever you look to reshape a model you need to face the reality of repainting it.

Thats how you get something like this
