I have an Allis trailer plow that through the parts book can be dated to 1938 or 1939. What color should this plow be? Where plows green prior to the change to orange? If so what color were the wheels?

Allis Chalmers and Wallis were never together in any sort. The Wallis tractor was built by the J.I. Case Plow Works which was sold to the Massey Harris company. 1929 was when A-C went orange.

The forerunner of Allis Chalmers was Wallis Co.Wallis Tractors were a shade of green. If anything early AC Plows were more than likely painted Grey.United Co. produced the model U Tractor which AC aquired and marketed and they were the beginning of the AC Orange color of which AC had several different shades .

Actually, Allis has had a bunch of changes. First it was green, then persimmon orange (later called Allis Chalmers orange #1). I think there were two or three different oranges. Then they were purchased by Deutch and went back to green (company name was Deutch Allis). When a group of investors bought the company back, they changed back to an orange and are now called AGCO Allis.

The change from green to orange was in 1930. I don't think the plows ever was green. When the plows were LaCrosse, I think they were still orange. I may be corrected on this if I am wrong. Dave.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
