6 volt car starting with 12 volt battery

Can you use a 12 volt battery to start an engine over that has a 6 volt setup. Actually the car is a 6 volt. I believe I read that you can turn the engine over with a 12 volt battery. Also the car is a positive ground car. 1940 Desoto. Is there anything I need to watch for? Im not planning on using the car with a 12 volt batttery just trying to get the engine to start. I do plan on eventually converting it to a 12 volt
