Ad indicates that it was home made, but there are parts of it that look like they came from a production model.

 

I like the big wheels and diesel motor.

That is a cool looking tractor. IT almost looks like it might have had a FEL. Good Luck, Rick

Apparently that hood is from a Ford Mustang!  For $600 you could still afford to send it anywhere in the States.

That isn't homemade at least not completely. It is a Gibson that has been repowered.

Even if the photo is backwards, the tires are still mounted wrong.

Looking online, I can see that it used to be a Gibson.

 

But there's definitely enough differences that the home-made claim may be within reason.

 

It looks like it could be fun to fix up, but is way outside my skills.  Maybe Will (iamsherwood) can rescue it.
