Mustang 4 lug conversion to 5 lug and bigger brakes

I have a 1931 ford that has a 1983 Mustang 8" rear end with 4 lug axles and very small drum brakes. It has a rather stock 302 with an AOD trans. I think I would like larger brakes and 5 lug axles. What will fit if any for a axle conversion and larger brakes. They do not need to be disk brakes. I have not driven the car yet as I am in construction. Maybe it will be fine. As I see it I have several options. 1. keep it the way it is. 2. Change the axles and brakes. 3. Put a new rear end under it that has 5 lugs and big brakes. I would like your thoughts about this. Thanks Les
