Want to own one of the baddest street rod tractors ever? Well here is a limited time chance to do so. Up for auction is the Massey Assassin. Itís the body of a late 40ís Massey Harris tractor nailed to a full custom streetrod chassis and twin turbo charged chevy engine. The power to weight ratio is off the map, It is built to abuse and will take about anything you can throw at it. So far I have had it up around 100MPH and its very predictable, drives just like a car. I donít have any quarter mile times or dyno to prove power or speed, It really doesnít even matter because you will let off before the car is maxed out. I have had it in several burnout competitions and it is known to bring everyone to their feet. At the shows there is always a ton of people around it. It has no title, I donít even know if it could be street legal. However I drive it on the road all the time. It has the orange triangle on the back so that helps me get away with a little of the legalitiesÖ..hahah, doesnít help much when you pass a cop going 85 in a 55 though. The Massey runs awesome, I spent a lot of time and money building the engine with good parts and not cheap no name crap. It runs on 93 pump gas just fine, even fires up in below freezing weather and runs good. The only issue is that the trans is an overdrive trans and has not had the wiring done to it yet, so I use low1 and 2 most of the time. When I first built the car it had a th350 trans with 3000 stall and ran in the double digits for boost, this combo was insane. Way too much power, way too fast. Since then I have put a stock 700r4 trans in it and lowered the boost to around 6 psi. Now you can at least drive it without puckering your but every time you hit the gas. The car also has 4 corner air ride that will let the car lower the frame to the ground. The mower deck is not real, but I tell everyone who asks it is to see if they will look.
Like I said this is a limited time offer. It was not cheap to build and It wonít sell for cheap either. If you want something that you can dominate burnout comps with and be a sure fire hit at every car show, this is it. A true ďone of a kindĒ Specs for the car listed below:
