No hopes here! Guess I'm slow on what he meant.  Guess CL has an auto-flag system for the word gun?

Yep. 'Things that go bang' is the common wording used on CL around here.

The running engine may be worth more than the $300 for someone fixing a midget or america. Good Luck, Rick

Looks like a cobbled up piece of  ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?  And I thought my re-motor job was a little on the crude side.  I think he has one to many '0' in his pricing.  Offer him a firecracker ? ! !

I think the engine is where the value is.  That tractor is hopelessly butchered.

What's wrong, Brian?  That doesn't qualify as all original?

Up until a year ago I would have bought that in a second.  Love something different.  I have enough projects to last another life time as it is now.

Well, wonder if the car engine parts would be hard to get?  I bet most are scrap by now.  Looks like they needed to make hood longer and didn't get to it. Hmmmm, was there a radiator in there yet?  also wondered how it all got connected to the driveline OR isn't it?  Right now might be a Motor Stand??  Go for it!  We don't need another "Correct" Bolens around here or anywhere, be different!

Well, that MG motor could be sold for core price of about $600 or so.

Specs of motor (MG Midget 1100 (41.7 kW / 57 PS / 56 hp)) and then mounted in a tube frame??? Someone is gonna get hurt real bad.

More work than it is worth, IMO.

 

Good luck.
