What year did Oliver first start offering the extra fuel tanks as fender options and what series were they available for?

What year did Oliver first start offering the large terra tires as an option and what series were they available for?

Were these a popular option, as they are so rare to see today?

I believe fuel tank fenders were first developed for the 1850 gas tractors. They
were very thirsty when working them hard in the field all day. I am not sure what
year exactly they started offering them
as a option.

I believe those options became available in 1964 with the 4 digit 50 series. The terra tires never caught on out on the farm - mostly just at shows and such for advertising. They sold quite a few with fender tanks though, mostly on the 1850 and 1950 models. They would hold 112 gallons of fuel with the three tanks. My dad had a 1950 with fender tanks and it would run 23 hours on a fill, and then it took about an hour to refill from the old gravity flow fuel barrel. Made for a 24 hour day.

I assume the fender tanks were for both gas and diesel?

There were very few big gas tractors in our area so I can't say for sure. But I would think they could be used for either gas or diesel. Wouldn't know why not anyhow.

Weren't those terra tires meant for the hilly wheat country in the Pacific Northwest where they'd been using crawlers? I remember seeing ads for them in Farm Journal and what not back in the day,seems like that's what they were pushing them for.

I had a dealer's son tell me that there were a couple of 50 series tractors in their shop here in Northeast Nebraska. I would guess they helped on the wet ground we have in this area.
Thanks
