Ab Jenkins did 67mph on an Allis Chalmers in 1935, so anything higher than that.

The row crop front axle will aid high speed handling but it's still a short wheelbase.
Some of those early speed records were set by Allis as company policy, touting the advantages of rubber tires to encourage farmer uptake.
