This has been a long project but we are exptremely happy with the outcome. When we bought the tractor it was Oliver Green, we worked for over a year on the mechanical end of it as we had time. It has spent another year at the painters as he worked on it part time.

Where was the tractor shipped to? They had some in Bowling Green Ohio for dealers to pick up. At one point the company pained some of the yellow ones green as they had some Oliver dealers that would take them.

I have the build card from Floyd County Historical Society and it appears to have been shipped to Watertown SD. We bought it out of Wisconsin

I?ve always been an Oliver fan, but that yellow tractor is one sharp looking tractor. Good job. I see you flipped the muffler over on the finished
product. Do you still have the 15.5 Firestone?s laying around in your way?

The tires have been put to good use on another tractor. we did not flip the muffler, it had and extension in it before that we removed to get it back factory.
