    Here's a crude picture of what I imagine I would build if I weren't so busy drawing pictures of what I imagine I would build.

    Perhaps you could put a model T grill shell around the radiator and go hoodless? ;)

    Yeah, I'm not sure how I feel about "theme rods." There are a lot of cool parts going into that build, and much as I love the P-40 Warhawk, I think that would be a neater car if he'd build it as a conventional hot rod with a Lincoln V-12.

    Heres a good looking tractor front end for a roadster.
    Its a Graham-Bradley built by the Graham auto company, marketed with David-Bradley the same maker as the walk behind tractors posted above.

    They were sold by Sears and Roebuck in the late thirties. Not many of em around. I'd like the sheetmetal for a rod and a complete one to restore.

    Can't wait to see what progress you make with this thing. A buddy of mine inherited a few acres in the country when his father-in-law died and one of these is rusting in his field. He's flipping back and forth on selling it (the complete tractor) or doing something with it.

    The Massey 510 Combines had 327's in them that were balanced at the factory.

    Someon at H.A.M.B. will do that and the traditional tractor restoration guys will cry in their beer! "Why did he chop up that original sheetmetal and use it for a CAR????"

    No one will cry. All the tin is repoped for the Ford tractors and it's dirt cheap.

    That's whats neat about the Fergies is that they have an aluminum grill and hood that can be polished out but they look very similar to the Ford 2/9/8n's.

    Thanks Frank for digging this one up :)

    Not feeling the skirted cars at all, I think the open wheel design suits it a bit more and possibly the side guards on the rear wheels like most tractors have would be a nice add on. Not too sure how they would do traveling down the road at 60mph though :eek:
