Not a GT - but cheaper than a lot of GTs.

I remember reading about these. They have a top speed of 40 miles per hour (60 KPH).

Ford model A or B car turned into a tractor, i can't tell which, still retains most of the car driveline, Worthington did the convertions to model Ts and some Chevys and Dodges into tractors also, the one pictured above has turf tires and more then likely pulled a gang of reel mowers.
My friend Jim has several variants of Worthingtons.

Those Worthington tractors were used a lot on golf courses.
