Here is a quote from Norm Swinford's book on Allis-Chalmers.

Many consider this to be the "Bible" on A-C.

"Full crown fenders, larger tires on fixed rims and heavy duty swinging drawbar were included in D-17 wheatland equipment. Few were sold as most grain farmers wanted more power. By 1960 the wheatland tractor was no longer in the price list"

I guess that would make them quite rare.

I live in wheat country and have never seen a wheatland D-17. But then typically wheat farmers needed big tractors and the D-17 was too small to compete against the top dogs of the era. Wasn’t until the D-21 when they finally had something.

Well in 1957 that's all they had, and i did see one D-17 Wheatland,the fender's looked a little big for the tractor, but they were damm well going to keep the dirt out of your eyes, i think the front end was heavier also, and bigger tires in front!

Gilbert Vust, AC collector in Portage la Prairie, Canada, had a D17 wheatland...it was in his shop when Prairie Farm Report videotaped in the 90s. Unfortunately, Gilbert passed away about a year ago after a fall. He used to come to the AC show in Hutchinson, MN, and gave seminars about AC equipment.
