Tractor collection

Recommended Posts

This is an article from News Herald paper in Franklin Pa. in 2005 that they did on my dad and his tractors. I've told several of you about his collection so I finally found the article and thought I would share. He was good friends with Jim Dick from Utica,Pa. He's never been on a computer, I tell him about this site and sure he'ld enjoy it. At one time he had 42 running Allis Chalmers and Simplicity tractors and I have no idea how Many attachments and parts. He turned 80 in November of last year and health isn't what it should be so most just sit anymore. Anyway his name is Lloyd D. Huff, no I'm not a Jr. Here's the article hope you all enjoy.

Thanks guys, He's had a passion for these tractors ever since I can remember. I can remember going to the local fairs every year and having spent a couple of hours looking at the new B series tractors never realizing what an impact it would have later in life. I would love to bring it all to Michigan after his passing, but wife says NO!!

Got new computer and trying to scan article so it can be read by you all, no such luck yet

I live about an hour from Franklin.

Maybe take a picture if the article with a smartphone and email it to your computer. The iPhone cameras are amazing. I'd post lots of pics if I could on this site but I only have the iPhone.

Thanks for sharing your family story. :)

Very Nice,

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
