ILL-MO Invitational Spring Crank-Up (April 28)

"Rick Maldeney and family visited the Daniel Boone Home in Defiance, MO for a day of historical re-enactments, period homes and businesses, craft displays, antique tractors, and hit-and-miss engines. Rick brought his WD45 to represent A-C and had a fun day at the first show hosted by the St. Charles County Parks Department and the Illinois-Missouri Tractor & Engine Club. This may become an annual event to keep an eye on."


Carlinville, IL Spring Festival (May 26)

"Dale and Kevin Bauer joined Rick Maldeney and family at a rainy Carlinville Spring Festival featuring A-Cs. Overall, this was a bigger show that included craft vendors, demonstrations, and the like. Dale picked up a very nice “woodcut” plaque crafted with an antique pedal-operated reciprocating saw featuring a ??? and a pair of A-C factory gloves. The plaque will be at the December Banquet. A-Cs will again be featured at the Fall Festival."

  History of the Nebraska Test Allis-Chalmers UC Tractor

Harry Clark is the oldest known owner of this 1935 Allis-Chalmers UC, Tractor Serial Number UC1704, Engine Serial Number UM2364, purchasing the tractor sometime in the 1930’s. Mr. Clark was from the Emmerson, Iowa area. It is thought that Mr. Clark may have purchased the tractor new from the A-C dealership in Shenandoah, Iowa. Mr. Clark died in 1984, and not long before that, he sold the tractor to his nephew, Mr. Leroy Henggeler, of Stanberry, Missouri for $200, which was what Mr. Clark had paid to have a replacement head installed with new valves, etc. Around 2000, the electric starter was installed, the motor was overhauled and the tractor restored and painted. Mr. Henggeler nicknamed the UC the “Beast”. Mr. Albert Salsbury painted the tractor. At that time, it was discovered that the tractor was the actual tractor that had been tested at the University of Nebraska in January 1935 pursuant to that state’s laws.


The sale to Mr. Henggeler contained the stipulation that the tractor was never to be sold. Mr. Henggeler kept true to his word. At the 2018 Orange Spectacular presented by the Upper Midwest A-C Club, Mr. Albert Salsbury introduced Mr. Henggeler to a member of the Missouri Allis-Chalmers Club and the two discussed the tractor and how it could be donated to the Missouri A-C Club. Mr. Henggeler said he was not 100% sure he was ready to make a decision, but a few phone calls later, on August 2, 2018, two members of the Missouri A-C Club drove to Stanberry and had a nice visit with Mr. and Mrs. Henggeler and picked up the Allis UC.


The Missouri Allis-Chalmers Club owes a huge thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Henggeler for such a wonderful and historic donation. The club plans to display the Allis-Chalmers UC at the Osage River Antique Power Association’s annual show in Eldon, Missouri on August 24-26, 2018. Mr. Henggeler said he would love to plow with the tractor one last time, so we are looking for a 3 bottom pull-type A-C plow to put behind the Beast.
