I used a XKE ifs on a 32 high boy back in the early 80's........it rode great but, today the components
probably would be too expensive. I bought the cross member from kugel/they no longer make it.

I looked at the XJ6 & think I like the looks of the Corvette better but, still hoping to find something
cheap.

Back in the 80's, you could get a split tube axle front end with a pair of torsion bars in the middle (kind of like the Twin I-Beam setup on Ford trucks)
I don't remember who made it, but it looked clean and traditional on a fenderless car

This isn't exactly what I had in mind, but food for thought: Vintage IFS System for Street Rods - Tech Articles - Street Rodder Magazine

Do a search here. It was a pretty long tread about 3-4 years ago. Basically that set up looked good but on a hot rod, didn't work well with alignment/camber problems. One of our members now at least semi-retired built a modified Ford twin I-beam suspension that worked OK, but, me, reading between the lines, thought it could have been better

As I was reading that thread, i immediatelt thought of this set-up, it looked pretty cool. I was also wondering if someone could build a Twin I-beam set up 9Ford trucks) scaled down to fit a rod...
That Vintage IFS you also posted is pretty cool, if I was building a rod, I would have to look into it...
