Well I got it home.  Went over after the parade and picked up the Allis that I saved from the scrap.  I was pleased when I took the tarp off.  It's not in too bad of shape but it does need 4 new shoes.  Can anyone enlighten me on the headlights.  Original or not?  No idea if they work or not and won't know for a while yet.  This one has something that my B10 doesn't, a Hi/Lo range.  I'm anxious to see how that works.  It's going into the shop but probably won't be touched for a while.  As usual, the projects pile up faster than I can get to them.  I'll post the serial number later if someone could tell me the year.  As you can see, the decals are in pretty good shape.

Looks like it was well worth a save.  That hi/low is not as common.

 

I'd say those are original lights, but that's just my guess.

Looks to be a great project, nice save! I'm picking up a parts B10 Wednesday since I need some trans parts for my B1 restoration. I think I'm addicted to these AC's.

The serial number on this tractor is 001404.  Can anyone tell me what year it was built?

Nice "Scrap" I love the old AC/Simplicites.

That would be a 66 or 67 model I believe.

Looks do-able! Engine turn over or stuck?  I love that seat with armrests and such. Zat stock or changed by PO?  I never like looks of these, they get the "Ugly" prize in my book. But each has his own interests I guess.

   You saved one that I would kill for, I want that HI-LO in the worst way.  I have never seen one in person only in pics.  The easiest way to tell if the lights are original is to look at the back of them, there will be a small stamping in the back that will say - guide -  They do look to be original from the pics.

   If you decide to part it out I would love to have that HI-LO.

The hi-lo and the headlights (which are original) just keep adding up to dollar signs! I'd try to get it going again before parting it out as it looks to be in pretty decent condition.

I can not believe someone was going to scrap that! Lights look original and you will love the HI/LO or as the Cub guys call it a "creeper".if you do any plowing or really slow work.
