Unique Allis Chalmers history for sale this Friday (May 10, 2019) on a Quarryville, PA auction.
The sale by our friends at Leaman Auctions, LLC, www.leamanauctions.com, is for Grumelli Farm Service, an Allis Chalmers / Agco and shortline dealer with roots going back 70 years. Here are just a few of the gems up for sale on the auction Friday:
1966 Allis Chalmers D21 with only 1488 hours
Here’s what the sale listing had to say about this super low hour D21: " Was acquired by Tony many years ago with an external crack in the block, the repair is located just behind fuel pump. The engine was overhauled and had new pistons and sleeves installed at that time and has been in the shed for last 25+ years. Is equipped with 2 hyd, 3 pt, front weights, 18.4-34 rear tires, appears to have 3 of the original tires and they would match the hours on the tractor. Straight sheet metal, It has been started and driven several times each year."
