A New Life for an Old Allis-Chalmers WD45
In October 2014, John Phipps started clearing things off his bucket list. One of those long-overdue promises was to restore his Allis-Chalmers WD45. Purchased by John’s father in 1953, it sat in the shed awaiting restoration. Finally, John decided this old orange gem needed a better home, so he gave it away. The winner was an energetic teenager from Fairbank, Iowa. She and her father restored it together with a little help from their community. See how this award-winning family project turned out by visiting www.USFarmReport.com and clicking on the Tractor Tales segment (Aug. 29 broadcast).
