That AC sure looks more like a massey fergusen 7 or 8 to me, it looks like you can still see the red paint showing through on the dash, If it is a massey or an AC it sure looks like it's been modified.

Gary, some very nice things seem to be growing in those weeds. Looks like lots of projects for you and your father. Good luck.

What kind of seeds did you use, and how many years to harvest? :D
Thanks for sharing!

Must've started as a 7 or 8, no variator, STD tranny, foot pegs... Hmmm, looks intriguing.

Still confusing to me tho... Looking like 12" rears and is that a lift I see?
