Ah the tractor repowers.
It is fascinating what shows up at farm shows, with some of them being considered highly modified for tractor pulls fifty years ago.
The V-8 powered N Fords, were the first ones I saw a long time ago this being the ones I first saw.

Munk quit the year after I was born but these boys do it nowadays.

Not a tractor, but an 1966 1000A IHC pickup. Currently on jack stands with the front clip off and old bg241 engine and cast iron Borg Warner automatic trans out. Have a rebuilt 345 V8 and TF727 ready to put in. It's getting Power disc brakes in the front and power steering while we're at it. Hot and humid today or else the engine and trans would be hovering above the frame so the motor mounts could be worked out. Straight 6 is 670#, v8 is around 700#, TF727 is 160# and I don't have a weight on the cast iron BG trans yet but I suspect the v8/aluminum trans will actually weigh less than the straight six-cast iron trans we had in there.

I mentioned in a post above, that vintage tractor prices are down, like this really nice Ford Workmaster I saw at a show last week,

Good paint and tires, a pretty nice old tractor,

$1,900.00 OBO,

Good price, it must be regional because for every one like that there are two like this.
In my part of the Midwest, prices are up.

Most like this will sell for about two grand less on average but again it depends on where you are and who is buying.
Usually those that have been used hard but still taken care of sell for the lower prices, still apprecialby more than ten years ago.

This one looks familiar:
