John's Tractor Giveaway

John Phipps is cleaning out the shed and looking to give his Allis Chalmers WD-45 to a loving home. Handed down from his father, it’s been in the family since 1953. John promised to restore the antique, but hasn’t been able to check it off his “bucket list.” So, he’s passing the opportunity onto one lucky viewer.

If you’re interested in restoring the tractor, you can enter for the chance to win. It’s simple:

  • In 50 words or less, tell John why you should receive the tractor. Deadline is Saturday, November 8, 2014 .
  • We will broadcast the winning entry on U.S. Farm Report
  • The winner must pick-up the tractor from John’s home by November 30
  • The winner must promise to restore the tractor by the end of 2015
  • The winner must send photos of the restoration progress throughout the year


Send your entry to for your chance to win. Please, put “wd45” in the subject line.

We will announce the winner the weekend of November 15, 2014.

  I just caught the tail end of the tractor giveaway and then checked online, but cannot find where this tractor is located. Where is it located and what shape is it in to begin with? Thank you for the information

  What a great idea! A couple questions.. What year is this tractor and is it a narrow or wide front? Where is it located?
