Larger rear wheels/smaller front wheels

Does anyone have any pictures of a Galaxie (preferably '65, but I'll take any year) using 17" rears and 15" fronts, or any other large rear/small front combo?

Hey Mr. I,
Doing that to one of these old Gals would be like making your "significant other" wear ballet slippers on her front feet, and jack-boots on her hind feet!

I have 16" on the front and 17" on the rear of my 61 Starliner but I don't post photos here but could send you one if you would like.
