will it work?

Hello people,
I found a complete hub to hub 1984 corvette front suspension that i was thinking of installing on my 1940 chevy master delux.Before i buy the thing, I'd like to know first of all if this installation is at all fasible.Another question would be :How hard would such a swap be.Can I just take the set up and weld it under the frame (I'll be using the stock chassis).If not what will I have to do to make it work?I saw that Progressive automotive advertises a suspension set up designed on corvette components but looking well at the pitures on their site, the cross member seems to be after market.Will I be able to use the Corvette cross member? Is there gonna be any cutting of the frame?I hope someone can help me with all this ...Thanks in advance.

The first thing I would do would be some measureing, Measure the track width on the front of your car then measure the track width on the Corvette front end. If the Corvette is too wide then your tires and wheels will not fit up under your car properly. Other than that I do not know what you would have to do.
