I have a friend that is thinking of restoring his dad's 1942 WC that has a welded steel rearend - instead of cast. It has a WD conversion in it, it has not run for 5 years. Is there any value in this tractor?

Thank you,
Vince

Yes, the steel rear ends are more rare and add some value and interest. They are alos quite a bit lighter than the cast ones for what it is worth.

What is meant by a "WD conversion"? I am restoring a 1945 WC that has a WD block, otherwise all original wc parts.

as for the steel rear end, I do believe these were known as "Wartime tractors" I am unsure how many were made like this, but they are a little more rare than just any old WC,. and I am planning to buy one soon. It's pretty rough, and he wants $250. Pretty much complete, busted block, bad rims, bad tires.

Just my thoughts,

Brad Gyde

sure it has value. Any old tractor espically Allis orange has some value. The steel rear ends were only made a couple years during WW2.True the Allis will not bring as many $$$ as a green one will, but the parts are much much cheaper. Those that think that Allis parts cost just should price the green. My .02 cents.
