here is one a fellow wants to sell,
now, i have never seen one this small, maybe in your part of the country, but not here, it says 60 on the front bolster, this thing is about the size of a 9-N ford, no adj axels, so --a std?? yes?
:crazy:

It is an Oliver 60. It might be a 60 industrial judging by the color of the paint under the green, Here in the midwest a lot of Oliver collectors would like to have that tractor. Serial number is located on the manifold side of the engine block. Due to World war 2 production was not that great. More questions?

I can think of at least two people in Northern Illinois that would love to have that tractor, one is one here but rarely posts anything so I don't know how often he watches what others post, and the other I don't think even knows about this site.

Neat little tractor !

DJ, I used to have an Oliver 60 just like that. My brother in law said he really wanted it so I gave it to him. He kept it a couple of years and sold it. Mine was the industrial model (I think possibly the one you have photoed is too) and had an extra high speed gear on it. That thing would do 35 to 40 MPH on the highway.

well, here is the latest update-
i found out it is actually a industrial model, it has the pads on the frame. a fellow stopped by and told me that, and they only built about 700 of them,
i do have it now, but will probably sell it soon
thanks
