The engine was originally a mid-mount, mounted directly behind/underneath the drivers back under the highest part of the body. Trail Bosses used an odd size tire (I forget the rim and tire size). They're small tires than most machines, and I've never seen one with the old style flotation tires. I'm sure you could re-tire it, but the price will depend a LOT on what tires you want to use.
Trail Bosses aren't all that rare; they come up on Ebay fairly often. Some people love them and think they're the greatest thing. The bodies were very thick fiberglass, and the machine got heavy quickly.
This is only my opinion, so you'll have to make your own decision, but I think that you'd be better off finding a used Attex/Max/Argo or machine with a similar drive line. You can often find these machines in good shape for a great price. Parts are plentiful, and the overall design, in my opinion, is better from an atv standpoint, and certainly from an aesthetic standpoint.
