As a boy growing up on a cotton farm in Arkansas, I remember an old man that drove his little Allis G from town to a field near our home. He would pull a little wagon with some implements on it to use during the day. From the seat of an old Super M Farmall, I would pine over one day getting me one of those little tractors.
This is my 1948 Allis Chalmers model G. I rebuilt it from the ground up. The little 4 cylinder Continental engine purrs like a kitten. What is interesting, while cultivating the corn in one of the pictures, my wife and I could hold a conversation. A quiet little thing. I reminisce about that old man 50+ years ago, every time I drive my G.
What I wouldn’t give now for that old Super M of my grandfathers. Both great tractors.
