1968 Allis-Chalmers D-12 Series III

1968 Allis-Chalmers D-12 Series III

 

This tractor was featured for the month of January in the 2009 Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.

 

In the showroom, it was priced at $3,400; a deluxe seat cost you an additional $27. Earlier models mounted headlights on each side of the radiator. The Series III mounted them on the fenders. This Allis model was as handsome in the white of winter as it was in the green of summer. Nebraska test No. 813 indicated 33.3 hp on the PTO from its 4-cylinder 149 cu. in. Allis-Chalmers gas engine. 

Owners:

William “Bill” and Nancy Tucker

Colo, Iowa

Their D-12 was sold new in North Carolina, where Dr. Tucker was a cardiac surgeon. Later it was purchased in Ohio and was completely restored for Nancy. She drives it on tractor rides sponsored by WHO Radio, Des Moines. The doctor-turned-Iowa-farmer and his wife hope to have a complete Allis-Chalmers D Series lineup some day.
