That color scheme looks familiar.

That's one of the ones I had in mind. But I can't think of a model with that grille.

Certainly looks like something associated with IH.

Umm...Wow. It is definitely the front end of an Allis Chalmers. It is either a D-15, D-17, or maybe even a D-19. But why it's purple and white as opposed to orange and beige is beyond me. Demonstrators weren't painted like this, were they?

Either way, I can confirm that this is an Allis Chalmers, and I'll do some looking into specific model numbers and let you know when I've found one.

I have definitely ruled out it being a D-15.

Allis Chalmers D-17, final answer.

It's an Allis, I think a D15 or smaller. The color is probably from faded paint and the camera. The yellow Cuda in Nash Bridges is skewed green to make the car the proper color on film.

This is absolutely, positively an Allis Chalmers "D" series. It's hard to get perspective from this limited view The D-14 through D-19 were almost exact copies, only proportionaly smaller as the model numbers decreased. I'm liking D-19, but it could be a D17, but no smaller than a D17. I'm gauging by the length of width of the radiator cowel between the grill and Generator (?).As a matter of fact, I think the 17 and 19 shared the same sheet metal. around the radiator. They just stretched the frame to accomdate 2 more cylinders on the D-19.

I cut my eye teeth on Allis's. I clocked more hours on the D-19 than any thing else. On my 'puter it is Persian Orange with Cream grille, but skewing a bit dark. If your 'puter is showing purple, your color settings aren't rendering properly and may need to be adjusted.

ACD19farmboy, was the D-17 radiator house narrower than the D-19? I haven't seen a D-17 in years. I was hoping to go to a 'showing of the Orange' next time they had one in the area and take some comparison shots. But I'll defer to your opinion.

Back in the 70's my dad bought a 4 row A/C cultivator from a tractor bone yard. The only way to get it home was a runnable, but u-u-u-u-gly D-19 the bone yard proprietor had sitting in the weeds. We already had a D-19, but Dad decided to drive this one home, then return it the next day. In the 15 to 20 miles from the bone yard to home, my dad fell in love with it. He told the bone yard proprietor he was not going to return the D-19 and bought it too. He was not, however, going to take it to the field for the neighbors to see, until he had a chance to clean it up. He brought home a bunch of wire brushes and sand paper and he, Mom and 4 of us kids went to work on it. After we sanded it down, he put on a new coat of Persian Orange. Then... he went and bought new decals for her. He did absolutely no body work to it. Only paint and it looked show room new. His only mistake was taking her to the field a day too soon. He scuffed the night quite dry paint on the RH fender where he rested his arm to watch the row. He still has that tractor. He says, "AC never built a better running tractor, before or since."

When Dad took that D-19 to the field for the first time, he grinned like a kid with a shiny new bike. He's never been happier.

Definitely a D-19, owing to the distance between the grill and the back of the cowl, in front of the generator. This example has been re-painted and the color is not OEM. The 'dart' at the front of the cream colored stripe is the wrong angle and upside down. OEM, this stripe is a decal. This appears to have been masked and painted.
