AC HB-212 Now Resides in The Villages Florida

Recommended Posts

JimH

We recently moved to The Villages florida and I refused to leave my latest pride and joy back in Rochester, NY.I am claiming that I am the only resident in this community of 100,000 plus residents to have and keep here an Antique garden tractor.I know I'm the only resident here with an Allis-Chalmers garden tractor.Can't wait to go cruising on the golf cart paths.

Your right Reed! I actually brought the blade and cart here for the nephew of my late AC friend Rod Adamson.Mark is coming this weekend from Blufton, SC to pick it up.The HB-212 came here for retirement with me.Planning on displaying at local fairs and gas engine shows.

:o:O Jim; not so sure I'd drive that on the cart paths. Those people are dangerous there. Never seen so many careless cart operators. However the Jewish deli restaurant has some of the best soup I have ever eaten. One of the smaller more friendly tractor shows is put on by the North Fla. Antique Engine Club at the fairgrounds in Starke on Hwy 301. Enjoy your retirement...Dave

Fantastic! I'm thinking you may want that dozer as a sort of cow-catcher for the folks who maylack in cart-driving skills. ;)

Jim,

That's a nice tractor for cruising. You may want to put a front and rear bumper on it for cart protection.:D Larger rear tires to improve ground speed would be good, also.

It's good to hear that you are keeping the Allis, and planning to show it.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
