Top left: Anybody need half a tractor? Bottom left: This could get real interesting. Above: These steel wheels sold almost immediately to an Ohio man.

This old Model U wasn’t parked in a very good spot. We weren’t sure what would happen when we tried to move it.
“Whoa, Dad, this isn’t working!” Greg Easley guiding the Allis-Chalmers WC onto the trailer.
