I knew a fellow that put a couple of Sherman Overdrive units in an N Series Ford tractor.

It was just plain SCARY in high cog!!!

But it was not as “racy” looking as the N Series hot rod pictured above!!!

Those fenders indicate it's obviously for racing in an orchard.

Yep,  I could see that "M" hooking to a big load of corn or beans and heading for town!

I thought somebody here was working on installing a GMC 351 V-6 in an M.  The V-6's rev higher,  shorter stiffer crankshaft,  the V-12's were restricted down to 2400 rpm,  V-6's 3600-3800. Just like so much of this great old equipment,  tough to find some parts for some of these big block V-6's.

Maybe not quite as cool as the "tractorods". I still like these V8 conversions😀

I will post the photos after we get the Cummins ISC 8.3 260 HP from the transit bus into the 464 mower tractor. Same RPM range as the D179 so gear train can stay the same, with a longer wheelbase.

........for some  vague   reason........I figured this sort of armoured  'vehicle'   would have been more to "Old Tanker's" liking, than those glorified adult  "sex aids"   .......complete with big engines  etc......
