I'm sure this has been discussed before, but since it's a new year, which Olivers would be on your list? Mine would be the "purple" 50 series, mist green 880, 440, and my favorite 2050/2150.

Well,the 8160 is one of a kind.

If somebody asked me to pick the one that would get the most looks at a show and would likely be the only one in the US,I'd probably have to pick the SAME built 462.

Even knowing what it is,I always thought the G1355 was the toughest looking Oliver ever. The 1865 is a rare bird that looks tough and would be on my list too,along with the 2655.

I wish I could find the 500 that the neighbor bought new back in the early 60s. I know where it got traded in on a new Ford,but nobody seems to remember where it went. A 600 would be even more rare than that.

I can think of 2 that I really want. #1 is a Super 44and #2 is a Super 55. I would not mind a Super 77 and a 88 standard

I assume you are asking about production models that were for sale to the public, and not concept/expermintal tractors.

If so, the production model that I would like is an Oliver Hart Parr standard row crop (sugar cane model) built in 1930 or 1931. I have only see one.

My second choice would ba a Oliver Twin 880. I have never see one in person, but there were six built and one sold.

My wish list is simpler...I collect the 70 line of Olivers and grew up in the 40's with all the neighbors using Oliver 70's. Rubber on the front and tiptoe rears. I have a few of those and am looking for a Raby cab for one of my 70"s.

I was fortunate enough to purchase an Oliver 80 diesel, so that is off my list. I would love to have an Oliver Chilled Plow tractor (prototype for the Hart Parr Row Crop 18/27) but I only know of 3, though there are probably a few more. Also a Hart Parr 28-50, and a Hart Parr 70 standard.

Never seen a 8160 before looks like the fenders are like a white fenders on the cab but the rest of the cab looks differant, and the grill is like the 55s with the lights, how many of these were built, were they just like a 1855 or a 1955 besides the cab or were they completely differant, what motor was used in it.

It's one of a kind. An 1855 with a 5.9 Cummins and a cab from a 6000 series White.

30 years ago, or so, there was a 500 on the local tractor lot, and it sat around there FOREVER. Problem was, the sales guy was a dyed-in-the-wool Oliver man, and he thought the Oliver badged David Brown was slightly less than worthless, so his sales efforts were not the best. Don't know what ever happened to it.

As far as the Oliver I'd like, I guess I'd go with the 995 Lugmatic, too. Just don't wanna pay "market price", LOL!

Okay, so were there a few made or did someone just put it together. Neat tractor though.

The 600 is even harder to find. Last one of those I saw was about 10 years ago on a jockeys lot north of West Plains Mo. I was going too fast when I noticed it to stop and look.
