The part that the DMV looks at is the VIN on the cowl. The EPA wants to know if the engines passed the emissions standards when it was manufactured. A tractor engine would only have to meet standards for a tractor not a car. Buy good used tools and jack stands then find a bay in a garage. If you don't weld, take a class first. Read at least three or four good books and articles. I recommend Keith Noakes on composites and Carroll Smith on race car building. Design with a factor of safety between 3 and 4. Then get the best components you can afford especially grade 5 or higher fasteners and tires. Separate dissimilar metals to prevent corrosion. Plan the work and work the plan. Save the beer for after working.
