Looks like it is coming along great! Allis Chalmer was the first farm tractor that I ever drove (It was a CA). I hope to restore one myself one day! Good luck with your restoration and be sure to keep us updated!

Those old WC's pull better then most others do, it's all up to how well you can do getting your weight in the right place. The paint is looking good so far. It appears to have had some pretty straight sheet metal on it. Nice job!!

That nose looks awfully nice! If you had to do any straightening, you did a darn fine job. Good shine to it.

That looks nice, your are doing a good job. I hope you didn't use rattle cans on it. That would be a pile of cans. :bounce:

Looks to be coming along pretty good. Keep up the good work. :thumbs: Was just wondering if your running it in a stock class? The engine appears to be "stock" for the tractor.
