The Model WC was a row crop tractor made by Allis-Chalmers from 1933 to 1948.
Until 1938, the WC had a smaller radiator and tires. It was also the first tractor tested with rubber tires in the Nebraska tests. The WC has a 4 cylinder, 201 cubic inch 4" bore x 4" stroke engine and was tested at 22 drawbar and 30 belt horsepower.
The WC was popular in the Great Depression; it was made partially from already existing components and would pull a two bottom plow. Also, its steel channel iron frame eliminated the need for heavy castings as in the Model U and Model UC.
With its minimalistic design and price and on rubber tires, about 178,000 were made from 1934 to 1948.
