After 3+1/2 Years......

Finally got this B-1 done!!!! I've been working on it for quite awhile now in my spare time. I took a while but it came out great! It runs like a top and it is alot of fun to drive! Nothing got spared on this one, as you can see it has the later B-10 axle tube in it. The B-1 style wasn't avalible anymore so thats about the only thing that doesn't look quite original. I overhauled the engine, bgb, and trannsmission. All the peices where sandblasted, fixed(if needed) primed and painted. I thought you guys would like to see it. Only one problem with it??!!:O:O I don't get to keep it!!!:(:(:( I restored it for a friend so hopefully he will get alot of enjoyment out of it.8D














I can't get over the shine in this picture. The sum must have been just right. My cousin painted the sheet metal, I hope to learn alot from him!










This is a nos grill he found at an old allis dealer!! Still have the wrapper to prove it! lol

That is a museum masterpiece dude! Take her to shows and win money for that investment,:D8D Most shows around here would pay big bucks for a first prize like that.

Thanks for all the nice comments!! The owner found the handle grips, I'll have to ask him tomorrow where he got them. I'm kinda sad to see it leave!:( LOL The tractors home is in Missouri Valley, Iowa. So you guys in Iowa might see it at a tractor show some time!

Man-oh-man. That is just unbelievable. If ever there was a "better than new" category, that tractor would be the drum leader!
