1948 Allis Chalmer C

I got this tractor from my grandpa's brother. I guess that would make him my Great Uncle?

We spent about 8 hrs getting it running and then I loaded it up and brought it home. Started painting on it a little yesterday.

I also bought a 1940 Allis Chalmers WC that the motor is locked up on and an old set of rear tires for $200 from him.

We are also getting for $400 a 1949 Allis Chalmers B from one of his sons. I have to make up my mind of whether I want the B or the C that I currently have. One of my brothers will buy the other one from me for however much money I have in it.

I like old tractors and I like messing around with them. I also got a free Athens disk turner with the C that I picked up. Played with it in the garden and it turns dirt like pretty awesome!

Here are a couple pics of the C.

that is really cool bf, it looks young again painted
I've always wanted to buy a tractor just to restore it but that idea just hasn't panned out yet.

Nice looking little oldie. My dad used to have an old Allis but he traded it off. Wish I could have got it.

Pretty cool BF, I like old stuff, and restoring them is better than throwing them out!

Those are great tractors...back then engines were easy to work on and didn't have all the fancy electro jazz like todays.
