I need any info on an Allis Chalmers CA tractor with a single front wheel. Is this what is known as Tricycle Front end. This tractor is in excellent condition both engine and body. Approximately when was it made? Is it worth restoring? Is it rare? Thanks for any info.
Andy

I finished restoring a 1956 CA this past August, wide front end. Great little tractor. Get the serial number of the tractor, should be by the gear box, and go to serial numbers on Yesterdays tractors and you should be able to pin point the year it was made.

The CA did come in the three configurations Bruce mentioned. The single front wheel seems to be the hardest to find. However, that will depend on the area of the country you are in. I've been told that vegetable farms used a lot of the single front wheel tractors. It seems to me that the single fronts are the lowest quantity still around for all of the makes. Get the CA, it's a great little tractor! I don't think the CA's are rare, but a SFW version might be unique at a show. I've also been told that they steer easier than the "regular" tricycle tractors.

The CA's were made between 1950 and 1957. They came with wide front end, or dual wheel, single wheel tricycle front end. It's value will vary depending on what part of the country you're in, but there's many Allis Chalmers fans out there that would tell you it's well worth restoring. I have a 1952 CA myself. I bought it 3 years ago with a two bottom plow for $1,000, and it runs great and gets a lot of use.
