Dan,  This is the basic Allis Chalmers corn planter that was also used on the G.  You could get them with runner openers or double disc openers.  Made in LaCross model LX-4962.  Manuals - check this site and check e-bay - they are available from time to time.
Got this information from Pop's 1960 price book.  At that time all we had was snap coupler or pin hitch.  Three point hitch came later.
Good Luck!

It would be an Allis Chalmers Drill Planter or have I seen it called a WD Drill Planter.  Best place for parts is probably by posting what you need here on the forum or by finding a parts machine someplace.  There was a manual listed on ebay not that long ago. 

 
Here is my planter mounted on my CA:

I'd like to have a planter like that. Can they be used to plant beans too?

Brian,
 
With the right plates, they can plant dang near anything. When they are wore out, they won't plant dang near anything.
 
There were a passle of them at the Muncy, PA sale in December, if I had take a torch, I would have bought a couple and stripped them. Didn't want to leave anything there though, glad I didn't.....

Yes they can.  That is what we are doing here, planting beans:
 
 
There are several different crops listed in the manual that can be planted with them. Like Glenn says, it just takes the right combination of seed plates.

Here's one in action. That's my father driving.  He bought that planter about 20 years ago for $40 at an auction only because the only other guy bidding on it was the scrap man and he didn't want to see it go to scrap!  We have planted 50+bushel/acre beans and 200+ corn with that planter.  I have always said that the seed doesn't care if it's put in the ground with a $40 planter or a $40,000 planter!

Here's mine...I plant corn and green beans using the same plate, set as thick as it will go.  I'd like to get some plates set up for pumpkins. Mine has the disc openers on it so it makes a pretty good furrow.  I unhook the drive chain and use it to lay out the rows for all the other vegetables. I am looking for another disc opener for mine since one has a tear and the rocks are making it worse.

PennsylvaniaNewt, those are markers that you drop to leave a line in the dirt to follow with the center of the tractor to maintain row spacing.

My 83 year old grandfather who still actively farms told me that his planter needs a few parts.  He needs the fertilizer shoes (i guess that's what they are called) and I think the plates.  I have searched the net like crazy and haven't been able to find anything.  He is the Williamsport, PA area.  I have pics if that would help identify the parts.  Used to be a place between Danville and Muncy that had alot of this stuff but I don't think they are in business anymore.   Any help would be appreciated.
