1962 502. The plan is to leave the original patina and make it almost a rat rod type tractor. The motor is going to be a 5.5hp Honda engine with a stack. The rear rims and tires are going to be replaced with 5 lug rims with 6x12 AG tires. I got the tractor a week ago and got a lot done in the last couple days. Here are the pictures!! :thumbs:

Rat Rod? You should put a Chevy V-8 in it then! :laughingteeth: Welcome to GT Talk, by the way.

That looks pretty solid for being 50yrs old. Good luck with the re power.

Looking like a great starting point, thanks for the pics.

Do you have the room under the hood for that engine? Are you going to have to mod it for the stacks or anything?

Thanks! Yeah it's a slant engine, but it should fit without any modifications. I don't want to cut the hood!
