Toady I finally got a Allis Chalmers GT. I have been wanting to get one for awhile. I really like my friends old soverign that he has. The one I got today is a 712S. The PO said that it sat for 3 years and when I got there he had it running and it seemed to run decently. It also came with a mower deck in sort of rough shape.

I got it for $50 but I think that I might have paid to much for it.

I know how much everyone likes pics so here are two pictures of it.

$50.? Yeah, I know, you thought maybe he would pay you to take it off his hands? :sidelaugh

I notice the sheet metal is straight and unless the deck is rusted really bad, it will just take a little elbow grease to get it in shape (well, maybe some paint remover, too). :D

I think you done good!! :fing32:

I was just kidding about thinking that I paid to much LOL. When I saw that it was only 50 bucks I replied to craigslist add right away and I was the first to reply too.

THIEF!!! Unless you're kidding, then you're a THIEF with a sense of humor. Nice find!
I was just kidding. The guy jsut really wanted it gone fats and he said that $50 was what the scrap yard would give him for it.

You did great on that machine!

I had a friend that had one of those growing up and it will work! They're great tractors.
