I had started this several years ago, but it ended up in the stalled projects pile.  Now that I have time on my hands, I've decided to finish it.

Originally it was painted Testor's Huggar Orange (which is pretty close to a factory IH color).  The tailgate and wheel flairs were removed.

I repainted it Tamiya Brilliant Orange, substituted the roll bar from the Revell Baja Bronco, and wired the engine.  The next major hurtle is coming up with a 6 point roll bar ( I HATE fabrication work!), other then that I'm on way.

Looks like a good start. Can't wait to see this one done.

Made some more progress.  Seatbelts and seats installed, Model Car Garage gauges for the instrument panel, and a front roll bar hoop constructed from 1/16th inch styrene covered wire.  Unfortunately the cage broke apart when I dry assembled it, so I'll re-glue it after the body is attached to the chassis.

This is a cool project, I like the idea.  I have this kit as well, and the windshield frame is warped.   I may do the same thing.   Looks great so far!
