I've got myself a possible piece of Allis Chalmers history.
Got it from a lady whos grandfather worked at Allis for nearly 60 years, mostly in advertising and promotional.
This early B10 was stripped bare, painted white and taken state to state for people to try head to head with other brands also painted white. They were all white with no logos/badges so there was no color/brand bias. He liked the tractor so much, He bought it after the promotion travels were over. When he bought it he asked for B10 decals, what they gave him were the Big Ten decals which were in production at the time. The lady and her father both remember the old man stating that he's rather it be all white since he hated the yellow color (Since the farm tractors were orange). He used it mostly for mowing and in the early 2000's the tractor was left outside the garage (which was packed full of allis chalmers stuff) and that night the garage caught on fire and burned to the ground.
It's rusty and stained, worn out, but it's ALL white. Some replacement parts and the deck are yellow or orange but overall it seems like the story holds water. She is looking for documentation or photos of it as the full promotional/demonstration machine. If such is the case, it will be restored to that condition. The gentleman passed away 7 years ago at 93 years of age.
I'll be cleaning the rust spots and staining, installing proper tires, a better seat and repro-nelson.
Otherwise it will stay just as it is.
