twisted flat bar

How do I model the following??
In elevation I have a 1 in wide by 1/4" thick flat bar by approx 6 in long
set a 60deg from horizontal
At the top end the bar is bent down to horizontal and twisted 90 deg flat 2
in long.
How do I model the twist and bend ???? (sounds like a new dance)
Thank you

See CF. It can also be done just by lofting between the two extrusions with
square cut ends and no intermediate profile, but it's not very pretty.

Don't make sketches on the extrusion ends, just pick the faces for profiles.
Delete the existing flow (transition) lines; clear Auto Mapping, select "Set
x" and press the key, then add flow lines as desired.
