Looks like someone did a nice neat tricycle swap on it.

Very nice. Is there any practical value to a narrow front on a GT like that or is it strictly for looks? It seems it would be too narrow to set the centre front wheels between rows and have the rears straddle the rows.

I think (my opinion) it is for looks only, and I do like the looks of these tricycle front ends.

I think it was mostly to show however it would probably turn a bit shorter also it would be easier to haul if space is at a premium in a trailer.. It looks better in real life he did a really nice job of painting it.

The paint does look great on it. I doubt it if it looked that good when new.
