I saw earlier this week a grille for sale on e.bay. See Item # 2529204072 under Allis Chalmers B. There is a hole just forward the hole for right the headlight. My grille for my '39 model was so badly rusted out due to a previous owner's neglect of a leaking radiator (I believe), I had to go out and find another one. I found it in a Tractor Salvage Yard in Tyler Texas. It also has the same hole in the same place. My "new" grille looks as if someone attempted to bondo it over. I think they missed too many classes in Auto Shop at school. Anyway, I always thought it was just a pucture to the grille until I saw the grille on e.bay. Do any of you know the purpose of that hole. It's obviously it's for some model beyond my '39 B. Lets put our heads together and solve this mystery for me.
