Allis-Chalmers Model C

The Allis-Chalmers Model C was a small row-crop tractor manufactured by Allis-Chalmers from 1940 to 1949. It was developed from the smaller Allis-Chalmers Model B.

The Model B was too small to work two crop rows at once. Allis-Chalmers briefly adapted the Allis-Chalmers Model WC as the RC from 1938 to 1941, but it proved expensive, so the B was adapted with wider wheel spacing options, a larger engine, and additional fuel options. The Model C used the RC’s 125-cubic-inch (2,050 cc) Allis-Chalmers 4-cylinder engine, with gasoline and distillate fuel options. The C inherited the B’s three-speed transmission, power take-off and hydraulics.

In 1949 a Model C sold for about $1,200.
