This is a picture of my wife Marlys, along with our 1934 Allis-Chal-mers 'WC'. This tractor is serial #146. It has extension rims, four spoke steering wheel, a kerosene cover on the manifold, rear-mounted auxiliary fuel tank, straight shift lever, and the 'Lazy S' clutch pedal. Missing from the original are the base-mount magneto, cast-iron valve cover and the canister-style oil filter.

We obtained this tractor ten years ago, painted it, and put on decals. We also have WC#417 which is on factory rubber with seventeen inch front wheels, has straight shift lever, four spoke wheel, and 'Lazy S' clutch also.

We have been Allis-Chalmers tractor enthusiasts for nearly forty years, and still have our first, second and third WC's, in order, a 1937,1940, and 1945. We also used three other WC's during the past years, a C, an RC and two WD 45's. We have three WC's with wide fronts, an RC with wide front on steel, two WC high-clearance, and RC on steel, two U's, a 20-35, a UC, and two WF's. Other machinery in our collection includes an 'S' crawler, an HD-19 crawler, a 100 self-propelled combine, and a field chopper.

Though they are now no longer being produced, the orange colored tractors, combines, and other machinery are still strong as memories.
