Congratulations to Curtis Mabe of Parkton, whose 1964 Allis-Chalmers D21 won Best of Show in the tractor competition at the Got to Be NC Festival.
The team of judges liked Mabe’s use of chrome and the many little details he used in restoring the tractor, says Pat Short, the festival’s motor sports coordinator. “It’s a very rare tractor,” Short says. “It’s also huge.”
The following tractors and owners also won awards in the competition:
- Best of Show, Prior to 1930 — Ken and Patti Eder of Carthage, 1914 Sawyer Massey
- Best of Show, 1930-49 — Jim Karriker of Mooresville, 1949 Allis-Chalmers G
- Best of Show, 1950-60 — Neil Fishel of Winston-Salem, 1953 McCormick 04
- Best Original Condition — Shane McDowell and Larry McDowell of Denton, 1929 McCormick-Deering 22-36.
