You can, but make sure that it is mounted far enough so as not to rub on the frame. I have seen this done in the past with good results. Just try to keep the amount of hose as short as possible and make sure that it does not rub especially with rearend travel/body roll

I am Looking for used Edelbrock 600 and Carter 600 carbs.

I would steer clear of the vette parts pedlers, they are usually very pricey. I ran all the brake lines on my '31 Model A and used stainless hard lines with stainless braided hose at all four corners. Call Godman Hi-Performance at 1-800-456-2369. They really know their stuff and are very helpfull. Godman also has thru-the-frame fittings and all the other pieces parts you will need to do a 1st class job.
