lincoln v-12 engines

I would like to use a modified Lincoln v-12 in a 30's ford. Is there a particular model in which a swap would be less difficult than others?

thanks, frank

Hot rod Lincoln.

I read the article about the guy that did the original hot rod lincoln song in the 50's, He actuall built the car. It said he had to extend the frame to get enough room to install the longer engine in his Model A ford. .

Frank - like to welcome you here as a newbie first

Next - what year Ford are you considering putting that V-12 into. They all have their 'considerations' but most have to deal with the additional few inches of length of that engine. Besides extending the frame you could also cut into the firewall. The firewall will lose you foot room, extending the frame gets you into body fitment if you are going to run fenders and hood.

If you do use a V-12, be forewarned that they are NOT all the same as the early ones (267 cid) were not a great choice except as a boat anchor You will need to do lots of homework to find good information and parts.
