Well there was a John Deere GP on the opening part.... But the Main tractor was indeed a Fordson purchased from Haney. Never did see the Fordson run but about every time they tried to start it a wheel or two fell off...

You'd, of thought they would have used an Oli-Vaar, as in the name his wife called him.

I don't rember what it was other then it had steel wheels. I do remember Ebb and Mr. Dougles working on it trying to get it running. Ebb said it was the raditor cap. Oliver questioned him, "Radiator cap???". Ebb said, "Yeah, it needs a new tractor under it."

Thanks for the 411 to all. A business associate of mine posed this question to me when he found out about my hobby. Green Acres were a bit B4 my time so I had no clue.
