I believe Gerry used a Jaguar for the base design so you might look at the E-type and saloon front ends for pieces or a complete swap. The drear ends work well too.

As a Moderator here, I would like to WELCOME YOU HERE.....

If you are going to go without fenders, A IFS can work on a 32 Ford. With fenders...the fenders interferes with the PROPER placement of the upper A arms. They should be equal length to the lower A arms and be parallel.



See how the A arms are NOT level with the ground and how much angle is on the upper A arm ? in the photo. This is the problem with IFS on Model A's and 32's. You know the camber HAS to be all over the place when the suspension moves.



I read in another post you did not have the 32 frame dimensions......so NOW you do.

This is how it should be......to be correct engineering wise....but this is NOT a 32 chassis. See how the upper A arm would NOT allow the fender to be in place ? See how the A arms are equal length ? They are also parallel....to the ground.

The photo abpve is a correctly done IFS ........and by Jerry Kugel....and he sells some IFS parts separately.

There may be a vehicle in you country that could be adapted....

Thanks for you help, i thought that parallel would be better, but all the pictures I have seen all show the top arm shorter and heading down to the chassis.
