I think this is a very interesting body, with the front fender pontoons and the tulip panel under the windshield very much like the Volkhart-Saggita. But on a smaller and lighter vehicle I'd go more spartan.
Get a JC Whitney 63 jag fiberglass front end. You could have custon axles built that would adapt the swing to IRS, BUT you're talking $$$$ and I have never heard of such a project, but I don't scrounge the NET much
casual notes from the underground:There are some "experts" out there that in reality don't have a clue as to what they are doing.
