Saw this on craigslist the other day and just wanted to share the pic.. I really like the look but I never saw this on a gt before. I assume there is a kit out there?

Have seen several like that at shows. Looks cool as heck. I think my FORD would look good like that.

I have seen pictures of a few of them and they look really good. I think his stack is slightly to large for the tractor though.

Everyone that I've seen have been hand made..

 

I've talked to a few of the owners and they tell me that they are mostly for show as they tip over really easy.

 

They sure do look neat though

Ha Arti, you stated they tip over easy which I can see but what about the larger one I know they made years ago and possibly still do make, wouldn't the bigger ones tip over easy also.

All of our WD45's were "tricycle" style. They all seemed to be wide enough in the rear that they were all really a lot more stable than you would think. My "C" has one single front wheel and is fairly stable. Common sense seems to help out a lot with these tractors.

I don't remember what tractor it was but when I worked on a farm there was one tractor with the narrow front end. Step on one of the brakes and turn the wheel and it would spin right around, never felt that it would tip.

Member Tractormike made several from GTs, search his user name or check out the custom forum.

I used to get yelled at for doing that. Was a real good way to impress/scare girls until they fell off.

I drove a MM "Z" with a trycycle front  and trip bucket that we owned.  Only used on flat ground and always felt safe even when using only one hand brake.  My younger brother and I co-owned a AC WC and same thing with that one.  But use it wrong and you can pay dearly.  Lost a friend that way and yes he grew up farming.

I had a one once. I felt just as safe on this as I did the wide front ends.
