1939 Allis Chalmers B
This tractor is a hand crank and has
hand brakes - it starts first crank (almost) every time!
David as always loved old tractors and bought
this old Allis B for "yard art" and to just play around with. It
eventually became an obsession (as usual) and ended up looking like
it now does - totally restored.
The next 2 projects:
1937 Allis Chalmers WC unstyled
This is a 1937 Allis Chalmers WC unstyled. The "unstyled" WC is not
as common in the south as the "styled" models and after a long search, we
finally found this one on the internet in Virginia.
It also is a hand crank and has hand brakes.
It is a much bigger and more powerful tractor then the B and
is kinda like driving a tank - great fun!
We really hope to get this one restored in the near future. So far
we have replaced the transmission, fixed a cracked block and are now
replacing bearings in the rear end. None of these problems came with
the tractor - talk about learning the hard way!
This is a 1948 Allis Chalmers G. 1948 was the first
model year for the G which makes this one kind of neat. It was designed
for small gardens and as a lawn tractor.
This is Mindy's tractor and as you can see, SHE has
quite a ways to go on it!
