I know this is a long shot without a serial number, but I thought I'd give it a try. I've never seen this tractor other than in pictures, but I'd like to track it down since my dad logged a lot of hours on it back in the day.

It was bought new on a trade in with the Oliver 60, the first tractor ever on the farm. It left in the early to mid-80s when it was traded off for a triple-digit era 550.

Some parts where swapped around to help build a pulling tractor, so it wasn't a totally accurate 66. It had an 88 narrow front under it and although the decals say super 66, it's still a fleetline 66, as evidenced by the front tub and side curtains. The reason it had the Super decals was because it was overhauled with a Super 66 kit. The grille and wheels were white and I believe there was on set of wheel weights on the outside, not sure about the inside. It also had STP decals on each side, just below the "Super 66." The added hydraulic reservoir was removed before it was traded off, as were the cultivator mounts.

The 66 was bought new at Kimble's, in Buffalo, just outside of Washington, PA on 844. It was traded off at Belmont Oliver, in Belmont, Ohio. Kimble's no longer exists, but Belmont Oliver is now Belmont Equipment.

Yes, they don't have records back that far, so I'm not sure what else to do at the moment.
