That does not look like any of the kits that were once available. I suspect it is another one-off conversion. The hardest part to make may be the engine to transmission adapter. After that, getting the hood/dash to look right would be the next hardest thing to tackle. My V8 project is coming together and will be running some time this summer. It has a very conservative 60hp rebuilt '49 flathead and a Howard creeper transmission. The intent is to make noise without going too fast. Of course the Howard or rear end would probably explode if I ever tried to do a hole shot with any traction. Finding one mostly done and fixing what I felt was not right would have been a lot easier than starting from scratch, but probably not cheaper.
