...removal of the snow would show it's condition better.

 

Why on earth would they do that? :)
Amazing isnt it? You'd think they could at least brush the snow off before taking the pictures. All thats says to me is that if he didnt care enough to clean it off, I bet he also didnt care enough to change the oil and maintain it either.

That hood looks like it's cut right above the air filter. Or is it just me?

WOW!! It still has at least one of the original plastic front wheel dust covers. Those are hard to find.

Yep, instead of finding the proper air horn they cut the hood.

Not cut, missing the top grill and AC logo.

Metal, called grease cup.

Not too hard, hard to find in good shape, usually dinged up.

The B-1 had a single piece grill...that one's chopped.  The hood is cut because the carb is off of a something like a 12-16 horse.  It looks odd...engine appears to be a 23D, but that carb is not original. 

 

Otherwise, a good looking survivor.  Hoods are out there.

Tommy,

The Allis B-1 is a rebranded Simplicity 725 with a different hood, chair and grill, the frame, engine, tranny, axles and wheels and related components are all mostly the same.

My Squire 9 is the same base tractor with the 23D engine with different hood and grill, i just changed the inner and outer bearings and races on the left front axle, the axle is the same as the Allis and 725 Simple, the part numbers are the same also.

All the early ones have the metal grease cups to the 70's, no plastic, the newer GTs have the grease cups or grease caps if you would with the soft plastic dust covers, many did not have the metal cups at all, just the solf plastic.

My eyes may not be very good with grainy/foggy pictures but Allis painted the cups yellow, what is on the tractor right now may very well be plastic covers but if so then is is not original to the tractor.

The B-1 that I have has one of them on and my cousin's early B-10 has one of them on as well. So I think that they were originally on there but could be wrong this sounds like a good question for Talntedmrgreen

My brother is correct. They did have a plastic cover over the metal caps. Have you ever looked at a brochure for a B-1? Take a good look at the front wheels and you will see the plastic covers. Here's a picture off google from an old piece of Allis-Chalmers literature to prove it.
