More from an old AC dealer

Recommended Posts

This past winter I fetched a modified Allis B series forklift, AC Homelite T-7 and some other odds and ends from what turned out to be a defunct Allis dealership. The son who is cleaning things up sent me a care package this week from his Dad’s things. 

Looks to me like early Simplicity dealer literature indicating he may have visited Port Washington right around the time he picked up the Allis and Simplicity lines.  From some sleuthing I did with his son, based on photos of the dealerships first day with a Lawn and Garden location (their primary location was AG and forestry), he opened up in 1964.
