Hello there my name is Brandon and from western Maine and got into fords by accident was a simplicity guy for a while and was looking for a FEL to go along with the 7117 I had well my buddy that does most of my fab work talked me into redoing the ford instead so here's a pics the last is my buddy taking a test drive after 2 days of heart ache trying to figure why we couldn't get to run and we had the condenser wire on the positive instead of the negative amazing how one little thing changes

Welcome to GTT. That is a beautiful GT. I'm working on an LGT 125 but I'm making slow progress. What paint did you use?
I noticed your name and have to ask what year. 40 years ago I was dating a girl with a purple 74 Javelin. 20 years ago I was working with a carpernter who had a white AMX. They are all pretty rare now. Glad to have you onboard. Good Luck, Rick

Very good work hopefully I can eventually get the tractor I just brought home to look that good.

Well thank you very much guys for your compliments, I appreciate it this weekend the loader will be on it and arms will be blue and bucket all white, came with a factory fit Johnson 10 tc FEL, also we got the 3pnt weight bucket all on painted too looking forward to bring it home and playing with the loader, but anyway we've gone through the tractor and changed the tranny fluid, the motor was a donor from from a lgt 165 so we have a little more hp now with the k-341 and we did use a after market carb and had to mod things with the choke a bit to get to work good and threaded fuel inlet on also has a 100lbs of compression also used the hour meter, now just a matter getting the rest of the parts sprayed out and back on, I'd be currios what this would be worth when this is done? any idea's?
