Why is it that ones like this come up a couple of times a year for a similar price but ones for the GTs are fewer and many times as expensive? My father bought that exact same loader on a brand new Ford 800 in 1955. He also got a Sherman backhoe on it. Good Luck, Rick

Would that be a good price to buy and have all the Hydraulics and enough steel to downsize it for a GT?

I think the cylinders would be too big. The hydraulics should always be weaker than the frame. Good Luck, Rick

Well tube loaders on Fords were usually not that strong and got bent alot. This one seems to have been beefed up some. Interesting big ARC of metal in middle that the cylinders push on. AND, most were trip buckets, this one is not. They are quite narrow and won't fit many tractors I bet, because of that.  Last but not least......it's UGLY!  and I bet weighs a ton.

I doubt if it is worth your time to make it lighter.  You will need a good bit of flow to tackle those cylinders, too, and a large reservoir to handle the oil when they are retracted.

You would hate yourself by the time you converted that to fit a GT
