This 1948 Allis Chalmers WD has been through 4 generations of our family. I’m sure these pictures have been on here before, but here they are.

I know this one is a lot newer than the others and probly the wrong color to some, but it's pretty special to me.  It's a 1981 4440 bought new by my grandpa.  My parents just inherited it about a month ago after my grandpa passed away. It has 4001 hrs.  It is a little faded but it's the nicest 40 series I've ever been around by far.

1946 Farmall H.  Grandpa purchased new.  Uncle Norman rebuilt it and added the battery box seat and 560 fenders in college.

I think all of our tractors were used, except for maybe an A, lol. We've owned several of them for over 40 years, but not new when we bought them. :D Pretty cool to have that history though!

Both of these tractors my Grandpa bought new.  The story is the last team of horses to leave the farm was traded in on the Super C.  It has been on the farm it's entire life.  The 756 he bought new but it left our place for a bit.....only went a couple miles away to one of the neighbor's.  We got it back a few years ago and added the cultivator.  Lotsa good memories on these two!!

Dad driving the 560D that Grandpa bought new in 1961. Grandpa bought a 461 cultivator with the tractor and didn’t miss a year until he hit 50 years with that setup in 2011 (age 89 then). E32C4417-C2AC-4876-A8BD-A6764F5ABC6F.thumb.jpeg.cf952e4e39214a1dcb86f6331505bb5b.jpeg

Not IH but this 1929 Chevrolet was bought new by my Mom’s Grandpa. Later owned by her Dad, then bought by my Dad’s Dad around 1972. He owned it until he moved to assisted living in 2015, when I bought it. That’s me at the wheel, youngest son behind me, youngest daughter at front of passenger window and my niece beside her.

Farmall 230 that came with the farm when grandfather bought it, it was a year old. That's me riding in the wagon back in 1979! It's still here and used regularly. Second pic is the 656D that was bought new, shown 10 years ago planting wheat. Pictures 3 and 4 are the 706 that Grandfather bought new in '63. it changed hands 3 times and I bought it back in 2004! First picture is when it was new, second picture is me plowing.

I have the 656 high utility that Dad bought new in 1968. it spent a lot of years with a New Idea loader on it. it has a 403C combine engine now, and something over 12000 hours on the rest of the tractor.

My grandfather bought this Oliver Super55 new in 56.  It's never left the farm, but is in need of full restoration, and some new back tires.  It's a one day project for me.  It's not really my cup of tea, but since it was the only tractor ever bought new by my family I have kept it.  

Here's where it's at currently.  I really need to get it under roof before it gets stuck tight.  I also need to hunt up the missing rear wheel.   I kept the 2 bottom Oliver plow with it too as I thought it nothing else it would be fun to take to plow days?

And this is what it should look like restored.  Apparently the 55-56 super's had green wheels, instead of red, or white like the 550 series did.   Personally I like the red wheels better but aren't "correct".
