tractors of its era, the 1950s, bore the Oliver marque. Here it appears as a utility model "55". Oliver followed a numerical pattern for its tractors, 55 being one. The Oliver 77, big brother to the one pictured, was especially popular as a row crop and plowing tractor. This beautifully maintained or restored example is advertising this year's Nittany Antique Machinery Association show of Central Pennsylvania. Details below in our list.
For yours truly, I'd rather be driving this than the latest whiz-bang from Detroit or across either ocean.
