    Signed up today and doing some reading. Building a 1927 Hudson with the running gear from a 66k Lincoln Mark V. Hope to share and learn.

    Got the frame kicked 4 inches in the front. Going to try and set motor and trans tomorrow to see how low she's going to sit.

    looks like it could be a cool ride.
    going to throw some gusseting plates on those rails to help strengthen it up a bit more?
    Here is a pic of what I mean on my 49 Hudson.

    Cut out was to show the diagonal weld on the rails under the plate.

    Should start a build thread. Just be careful what you post as it would suck if they pulled the thread down for not being traditional. Things like Mustang front ends, rat rods etc offend some people on here. not sure how a 1966 Lincoln would sit with them as from memory they call traditional as being 65 and older.
    Still hang about. Some great people on here with a wealth of knowledge in all areas of the auto arts and history.

    Also check out the Hudson forums. https://forum.hetclub.org/ super friendly bunch and die hard Hudson fans. More into restoring by a long shot than modifying but again a wealth of knowledge.

    Hi & welcome Sounds like it will be a great ride. For a tip start your build thread on the general forum & just say Lincoln & not the year then nobody will get picky over the year. Likely there is no difference in those parts from either 65 or 66. Likely you just made a mistake & thought those 65 parts were 66.
    Good luck, Jimmie
