I remember seeing a similar machine in a farm magazine about 1960. Fellow took two WC rear ends, made his own drop box, etc. About then some farmers were making their own 4WD tractors, or coupling two tractors together. One even hooked two tractors together and added a Wisconsin engine on the second tractor's platform, and ran a chain down to the pto to add hp. Biggest headache with coupled tractors was making controls work simultaneously- slave cylinder setups were either not cheap or not available.

Well I am not the world's greatest expert on AC tractors, I have been interested in them for a while, read many of the history books on AC, and seen a few, but never one like this one. It looks like a homemade one to me. WC looking axle and some homemade looking things on it. Don't get me wrong by "homemade", it looks, from the picture, like a good job. What do you other guys think?

I agree with first two replies. There was nothing like that built by Allis Chalmers. I have Norm Swinfords book and it's not shown or listed. It is however, a fine job and congratulations goes to the builder.PS: Whers it located? I would like to see it someday if I'm ever in the area.

I agree that is really some machine. Makes me think of some of the old farm built machines that I have seen and I wish we had more of that kind of spirit today can't afford one build it out of what you can afford. Who ever built this has every right to be proud of their machine.

WC axles for sure, the rest looks newer, but my hat is off to the man who built it !

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
