Not a GT but I just couldn't leave it to be melted down. I have a 5 H.P. Briggs for it and need to get a sprocket for the motor to have it running. Then I'll strip it back down and paint it.

That needs a wheelie bar and some nitrous! Cool three wheeler, I have a few of them. I like the nostalgia in the things and its always advantageous to have things that aren't made any longer! Have fun with it just watch the throttle in the turns a little gas and control goes out the window.

A 5HP briggs would be plenty to make that a fun ride! Had a 5hp Briggs on a home made Go cart when I was a kid. Lots of fun!!

Quick glance I believe its a Bird Engineering Mini Trike, Produced some where in the 70s.  All the cool old stuff was made in the 70s!

 

 

Edit.

 

Definitely a Bird Engineering Mini Trike.  At one time it had a fiberglass engine guard/fenders on the rear, but usually they are always gone.

 

Reasonably rare, I can't find a whole lot of information on them.

Local Shriner's used to have 3 wheelers something like that but to many wrecks with their shinagins so went to 4 wheeled machines.  Safer but they just got crazier.
