Chrysler products used the same system into the mid fifties. Well ahead of their time. All the parts are available. I have a 48 Dodge business coupe. All the front end parts purchased from vendor on Ebay. I then used a rebuilt Cavalier rack&pinion steering box. Also from an Ebay seller. Disc brake conversion. Stops great.

You have to re-position the shocks tho, they missed the boat on that.

Drives and steers very well. Nice and tight, not too quick. Decent road "Feel".
