Like International, Allis-Chalmers began to assemble tractors in Britain after WW2. Initially they produced their well known B model (announced in the USA in 1938) and then in 1956 introduced the D-270 from their Essendine Works near Stamford. Like the Model B, it could have four-cylinder 2053cc petrol or vapourising oil engines, or the Perkins P3 2359cc diesel engine. Four forward and one reverse gear were available. The D-270 evolved into the D272 in 1957 but Allis-Chalmers soon discontinued tractor manufacture in Britain, concentrating on larger horsepower tractors and earth-moving machinery in the USA.
