Front clip for '54 Chrysler

I've got a 1954 Chrysler stationwagon, I want to swap the front end for something a bit more modern with IFS, disc brakes, power steering etc.
& slam it on the deck.
I thought the best way to achieve this would be to graft on a front clip from a more modern vehicle. I want to keep it all Mopar though. Does any one have any suggestions of a suitable donor car. Choice of engine will be a crate 350ci Hemi - finances permitting.

Mopar front end source

How about from a 1/2 ton 2WD Dodge pickup or Ramcharger?

I would use the volare.
That way you could adjust the ride height if needed just by
adjusting the torsion bars.
