DEUTZ-Allis

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, new to forum and new to collecting gts. One thing i have learned, you can not have just one. Two months ago i bought a 916 Deutz-Allis. I liked the looks of it, but did not know it was built Simplicity. Long story short, i do not see many of these tractors. Are they disliked or not many around? Thanks for having me on this great forum. Sonny

Welcome Sonny! It's not that they are disliked, but frankly, I've only happened upon a couple in my path. I've known a few folks that don't care for the crazy color, but otherwise they are a terrific, heavy duty machine ..... Have fun ....

Ray, So after restoring that one, you are going to repaint it Orange? That seems a shame, the green looks sharp on it. Rick.........

Rick, No, I will be painting one just like it orange. Another Allis Chalmers 916H or possibly a 716H early with the side headlights. Should do both I may have enough paint.

Ray, My mistake I re-read your original post and you stated you were going to paint another one just like it. I vote to do both. I prefer the oragne look over the white and orange look. Rick..........

Me too! I don`t even like the rims white. So I probably will paint them pearl grey.
