Yes.

 

Its rare, but not that rare.  It's below 1000 rare for certain.

nice looking tractor.... I dont recall seeing an Oliver garden tractor before. I think he is too high though.

Just a thought.. If someone really wanted one to complete a collection it might be worth a few dollars to them.. This one is not show quality and has no attachments. So it s not for show and can't really be used for anything the way it sits

 

 Given that I would say his asking price is on the high side.

It's cool...but I don't think it is worth what he is asking.

Seeing one for the first time I noticed that it is a tube frame but doesn't look nearly as strong as the Ford tube frame tractors. For a collector it may be worth close to the asking price but based on what's included alone I could never justify that kind of price.

And he calls that price fair ? Must be because of the ventilated mower deck !

Isn't this the same as the Ford?  I thought they were both Jacobsen products.

I'm not up on Oliver models, but I know some have changed hands for over $5K.

Yes, they were Jacobsen made. Just not a lot of them out there so these folks think they can get rich off one.

Well I want to see the serial decal before I would pay that. Know if it is the real thing and has the serial to prove that it is a oliver. He is in the ball park on price. Most Olivers sell unrestored for between 2000 to 4000 grand depending on model. Restored 3500 to 6500. Jacobsen did make them for the 1973 model year. Most of them did not sell untill 1974.They where well built tractor but where on the pricey side. In 1974 white garden tractors where on the market and where built by MTD.

For some reason I can't get the pictures to enlarge, but if the original engine numbers are of proper sequence and if it has a good tag, this tractor is very fairly priced. Doesn't look like it will take much to finish , if it's as nice as the pictures.

 

There were only between 400 and maybe 450 Oliver / red White Town & Country's done ,and that includes all models .They are one of the rarest garden tractors of all major manufacturers .
