That would make it torsion bars in the transverse position from a quick google
 "Front suspension was by trailing links and transverse torsion bars."
The trick would be a solid mounting in the front middle of the chassis to take 4 matched socket extensions to the trailing arms, A bushed mount to the outside of the chassis on each side, adjusters in between the middle mount, a king pin through an upright connecting each pair of trailing arms and a set of Gemini spindle carriers?

Way from orthodox, but in keeping with the original. Also a lot of head scratching to make sure it can't come to bits under load or flex too much with side load.
Probably best to simplify this  ;D
