If anyone ever made one, it'd probably be Planar or possibly one of the
companies that makes medical-imaging LCDs.

Later in this thread you mention needing quite a few of them.  Would there
be enough demand to justify sourcing panels and a compatible controller
board?  You might not be able to find a 1600x1200 panel, but 1920x1200 is
doable.  Fabricating a box to hold the panel, interface board, and PSU
isn't *that* tall a scope of work for a fixed installation that doesn't
need to meet consumer appliance certifications.

You'd still need to "letterbox" the display to fit into the 4:3 aperture,
