Cool 1931 oldsmobile front suspension upgrade

I have a friend who is wanting to upgrade to independent suspension in his 31 olds 5 window coupe. He is concidering mustang 2 or pinto and has located a free pinto. What is the best suspension to use in this car and has anyone installed a mustang 2 type or anything else in one of these cars? Note: This is almost identical to a 31 chevy.

You say that that car is similar to the 31 Chevy. I believe that would also make it similar to the 31 Ford. If that is the case, using an original Pinto or Mustang II crossmember and suspension parts, would require modifying the fenders for clearance of the upper control arms.
