I did all the restoration work on this 1939 Allis-Chalmers Model B myself. It took two full years to complete. I am real proud of the way it turned out. It gets so many compliments at tractor shows. I enjoy speaking to all of the people passing by, and educating them on the rich history of this tractor, and answering any questions they might have. I will be 73 years old this year, and am finding it more important than ever to help educate the younger generation on the overall importance of the antique tractor, hoping that some of the history is carried on.
