Post Front suspension - 42 Lincoln Continental

My 42 Lincoln Continental has so many original parts missing that I've decided I'd rather make it a "driver" than try to restore it. Any recommendations on front suspension, eg., split wishbone vs. IFS? If IFS would be best, do you recommend a kit, or trying to graft a front clip from another car?

Also, would appreciate any suggestions on engine and transmission combinations. What about rear suspension?

call Fat Man Fabrication they advertise in all the hot rod mags, exellent front end stuff that works first time, small chev-350 turbo, or 302 ford with c-4 are the easiest. 10 bolt chev-8inch ford rears, all work well with minimum hassle, if you want exotic or different it costs more. if you want reliable keep it simple.
