I found another GT. This time a Allis Chalmers B-10. Boy is it sweet looking (except for the silver paint a previous owner put on it.)

 

Can anyone point me to some links on the History of this Tractor? Would love to learn more about it as I bring it back to life.

 

Any tips on finding parts for it? A quick ebay search didn't bring up much.

 

It was in someone's shed for an unknown amount of time.

Great machines, congrats! I found that it's easier to buy tractors for cheap to find the parts you need. I started out with an A/C B1 and I now have two A/C Big Tens, a 64' Simplicity land lord, and another Big Ten on the way on Friday. They must have had a huge sale on silver and gold paint at some point. Here's the Landlord.

Great find!  You'll love that B10.  I really like mine.  Stout machines.

Awesome. So the Simplicity Landlord shares the same design as the B-10. Is the sheet metal interchangable? My B- 10 is missing the Left Fender, and I am trying to find one, or contemplate trying to fabricate one myself.

It needs a sister. Check out http://gardentractor...ow-plow-125-ri/

 

They are great tractors and there are plenty of them around. They also made alot of attachments for them. For the history and a look at the attachments go to  www.simpletractors.com  .  You can download manuals from our Manuals Section(3 free per day). Good Luck, Rick

Just about all is interchangable, with Allis Chalmers the grill is one piece, Simplicity is two.

Looks like a nice late model B-10. Spent many many hours behind the wheel of one of those in my teen years.
