1934 Allis-Chalmers Model WC


This is an "unstyled" WC, before Allis-Chalmers hired Brooks Stevens to sexy up the looks of their farm implements.
The cockpit defines "spartan accommodations".

The Jeep Wagoneer, the Weinermobile, and the essential Harley-Davidson? My hat's off to you, Mr. Brooks.

Thanks, Tam - love those little tidbits, especially the ones of which I was ignorant.

Good looking plow puller.

A few WCs still operate around here, mostly as yard tractors for moving snow.

Some guys hated them for the off-center steering and seat --"side assers."

Ours was a war-time styled tank version. Hand brakes, mystery gear pattern on the transmission, magneto ignition and personification of the expression "Is tractor. Is dangerous."

I wish we still had it.

Just noticed they have the traditional tin can over the exhaust. When I was a kid I liked to start the engine with the can in place and see how high you could shoot it.

@TJ, didn't you see the Oliver 2 rows behind the AC-WC?
