Allis Chalmers D17

The Allis Chalmers D17 was one of their best selling models. It was built from 1958-67. Between those years 84,914 of these orange beauties were built and were sold for around $5500. The D17 featured a power-director hand clutch transmission that was four gears forward and one reverse gear. The AC D17 had power adjustable rear wheels, and a traction boost system. With the hand lever clutch it allowed for on the go shifting between the direct and lower drive and a neutral allowing the PTO to continue power.

Allis Chalmers made the D17 in 3 different engine types, regular gas, LP gas, and diesel. The gas engine put out about 52.7 hp, the LP gas engine produced about 50.8hp, and the diesel produced 51.1 horses. Here are the years for serial number identification which are located on the left front torque housing.
