The '''Allis-Chalmers Model WC''' model was a [[row crop]] tractor manufactured from 1933 to 1948 by the [[Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company]] of America. The WC was a 28 horse power tractor, and had the highest production volume of all the tractors Allis Chalmers produced, with over 178,000 units being produced. 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 of 825 dollars on rubber tires, about 178,000 were made from 1934 to 1948.
