i believe there were aftermarket kits you could get to convert the old cars into tractors. we have an antique tractor show in town every year and there are a few of them still around where they put the old steel wheels on the back. in those days a farmer needed a tractor more than he needed a car and cars were cheaper.

I'm thinking it is Shelley Fabares from the movie Spinout, 1966.
Her name is Terry Bagley - a student at Shelby's driving school 1962
Both Cobras in Spinout are 427's
