Will this work?

Suspension & Front-End Gurus out in HR Land - I have a front suspension/ crossmember from a '76 Toyota pickup that bolted onto the original Toyota chassis - I didn't have to cut it out. It's 'C' clamped to the frame rails of my '36 Hudson Terraplane checking the fit. Looking at the photos I've attached, will this work or not?

The Toyota chassis went straight to the front and then both frame rails turned out where this crossmember bolted on. Because of the mounting of the front fenders, I can't spread my frame rails to match the Toyota crossmember.

If it will work, I know I have to weld some bracing under it so I can bolt it to my Hudson chassis - after I box my rails. I also want to put some 1/2-inch pipe sleeves inside the frame rails for the bolts to go through to keep the frame from squeezing down from the pressure of the bolts (or is this overkill?).

The engine is a 3.8L V6 Ford. I will also have to modify the inner fenders so everything will fit.

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
