Funky Ford 8N Tractor for Electric Conversion?

We take a look at a Ford 8N tractor. Would this make a good electric conversion?https://300mpg.org/2019/10/29/ford-8n-tractor-for-electric-conversion/

I stopped by a friend’s property where she has two Ford 8N tractors parked. The second tractor looked very unusual. After a bit of research, I found out it was a “Funk Conversion” which added a 6-cylinder engine into the tractor that normally would have had a 4 cylinder engine. Here’s a nice article about the Funk Conversions:

I’m interested in converting a tractor to electric, so this was a nice chance for me just to take a look at a few in person to see what might work. These Ford 8Ns are nice in that they are “old-school” with everything being mechanical, and the tractors themselves are common, easy to fix, and have lots of parts available.

If you wanted to convert a tractor to electric, which make and model would you convert?
