Not a 8 cyl one but i did see a modified t60 once with some type of 4cyl. It was flat black with red rims like some 50's hot rod. It looked like it was stretched a little. I dont know i was on the fence about it. Looked cool but not for me, more of a stock person myself

Please consider this carefully before taking a rare GT and creating something that will not be of much use other than a show piece. The tractor chassis was never built to take the weight and power of a V8 engine. The rear end is the only part that would be up to the task.

Like Brian said. The frame is made out of gas pipe. The diff is upside down and would have to install a tranny. The axles are the weak point because they have been butt welded together.

Seems like the larger panzer is the hotrodders choice.

Was thinking You're Nuts! Then see those pix and hard to believe it was done! Wouldn't have much use that way, but guess might be a toy for a little while, till it broke! Ha! :shoot2:

Well kid,  It sounds like you have all the credentials needed.  Nice to hear you have a Dad that likes to work with you.  I have two daughters and neither one is mechanical but I am working on my two Grandsons.  Wish me luck.

I'd have to say the 1107.  That's the steel square hood.  You know I have always liked the V8-60 HP from a 1937/38 Ford.  They are hard to find but nice, neat,small and don't have too much power although the tranny could pose a problem.
