I know they are rare, but $2,400.00 Rare. Original owner says only 440 built.

That is a rare bird! Hard to find parts for them, and plus he has ALL of the manuals. Also the deck and snow plow. If I had the money, I'd probably go and get her. Clean her up, and put her in my tractor collection. Ian

Looks a lot like a Ford LGT and a pretty pricey one at that.

JD., Jacobsen built the Oliver GT on the same Chassis as the Ford, just different sheet metal.

 It looks like a Ford and a Jacobsen because Jacobsen manufactured Ford, Olivers (for a short time), its own tractor, and Minneapolis Moline. Its pretty neat how they look alike, but different names. Ian.

Scroll down through these auction results until you come to the Olivers.You might stop on your way down through and see what some of those John Deere Bells sold for.

I've seen some at shows all pretty and they wanted $5000 for them. Guess only made one year?  I would want an MM one if I was to get one. But, they sell for $1000 at least and don't even have to be nice. I DID have a White model town and country, only one year for those too I guess. Was a hydro and I never really did like the thing. The seat was way too low and no springs and the hydro lever was under my leg when setting on it and awkward to use. Did steer nice tho!

Price may be a bit high, depends on how it cleans up and if it needs restored or left the way it is. No one knows for sure the exact number, we haven't found enough serial numbers to support the theory of a number any higher than around 400. The 105 is probably the most common size ( probably because of price ).

 

They are similar to the Ford chassis , but there are a lot of differences ,if you know what your looking for

Auction ended. No bids. Maybe he'll re-list it at a lower price? I'd say $600 if he wants to sell it. And hope to get $1200? With no pto or rear lift, I'd say that limits the desirability some. Plus you'd have to be somewhere near upstate New York.
