Little  high for me, but cool looking tractor.

Don Knasel at www.awesomehenry.com sells these conversion kits? My work has his website blocked or it's gone, I dunno.

 

This one appears to have 6.5Hp HB motor and built on an Early 70's Sears SS chassis, has the 73-75 dash,battery tray, and I can see a motor tab from the Onan.

For $4000 you could have the real thing. The Henry site didn't open for me, either.

I see them all the time in my area for $2500-3000, that's restored/repainted.

I saw a post form another website from a few years ago stating website wouldn't open. I read Don was older so maybe health problems plagued him and it got shut down.

The mini-8 is cool, but no way I'd give anything remotely to that price!  Would look much better if the hood sat level.  Cocked up in the rear just doesn't look right.

Needs a Feguson System 3 point, then maybe 4k.

Cool looking piece, scratch another Sears off tho.

Nice tractor, but with the 3 point, as mentioned, and a scale size 2 bottom plow would be neat. Might plow good too.Noel

Its about like the New Holland 8N Boomer compact.   Nice looking, but not in my budget!

I wonder how many of those they actually did sell? Are they still available?

I wonder which GTs dash panel actually fits that hood perfectly!
