My Grandfather was an Allis Chalmers dealer from the 1950's until 1988. The dealership was known as Stephens Farm Equipment and sold all AC farm equipment and parts. He also sold lawn and garden tractors. My father was an independent farmer and worked at the dealership during the off seasons. Some of my fondest memeories are of my Dad putting me on his lap while he was running a tractor or a combine. The smell of grease or diesel fuel still brings back fond memories. His was a family run business with his sister,brother-in-law,son, and daughter-in-law all working in some capacity over the years. Even his grandaughters worked the office. I remember runs to the district office in Richmond to pick up parts and meeting and talking with customers. It was a grand time and he, my father and the business are greatly missed in the community. It seemed after the dealership closed, many farmers retired and few have taken their place. So, AC orange brings back many great memories of really good times. I am trying to add to my collection of AC toys as a way to honor those memories.
