You list design and build as in you skill set, based on that I'd pick an upright that is larger and, or just fabricate one with large ball-joints and wheel bearings. Camaro, Vette, Mustang, ect...

Oh and welcome
Excellent points, and I seriously considered fabbing my own using salvage yard spindles from a Police Caprice, but not only is my budget minimal, but my wife doesn't leave me much time for this. Nor do I have a garage, only a private concrete driveway with a tarp over it. So setting up to engineer the Ackerman, anti-dive, roll center, et centers, all of which I've done before, just isn't happening. It just doesn't seem worth it for a cruiser that will never compete. The Opel GT's handling wasn't bad, it's flaws are known and easily improved cheaply, and it's the same IFS I got.
This won't be the car of my dreams. This is practice for the car of my dreams.
