Is this Oliver tractor for real or did someone make this up?  I am kinda new to the GT hobby and far from an expert on the subject. But I have never heard of one of these before.  It looks like the same tractor as my old Jacobsen Chief.  Looks like he is mighty proud of it too.

I don't remember Jac making the 105 in that model, they did make a Town and Country, but it was blue. There is a thread somewhere here, I'll see if I can find it.

All of the Olivers were the later style Jacs. Looks like a fake to me.

That is as I remember it also.

This is the only 105 I've seen.

I did a search and found this. olivergt.PNG   The one you found, however nice it looks, is a close clone. Looks like a Jake Chief. Still looks good though. JM2CW. Roger.

Yes it is a made up tractor. They did not make the oliver gt's until 1973. This someone passing off a made up tractor. Jacobsen built the oliver gt's. In 1970 Jacobsen built the blue and white gt's call town and country's. The blue and white ones where made for a little over a year. From 1964 to 1969 the Jacobsen built the Minneapolis Moline these where yellow and white color. In 1962 to 1964 they built the Moline mocrafts which where brown and white.

I have a 1966 Ford 80 with the same sheet metal as this one. Mine is an 8 hp and this one look to be a 10 hp. I say that because the starter in on the right mine is on the left. So I am thinking this a painted up Ford or MM.
