I looked at a local auction, there is a Oliver 145 in real good shape.  Trying to figure out what it's worth It's in real good shape grill is not cracked.  Doesn't look like a repaint. Don't know if it runs but looks like it does 

Any thoughts ?

From what I've seen? Big bucks!
I think it's the people that collect the farm tractors.
They just want to have a mini for a toy. Don't seem to care what it costs.
If it sells for anything near what a Ford or Jacobsen sells for grap it!

Grab it if you can.

 

They were built by Jacobsen for Oliver, and are danged decent tractors.

 

Highly collectable as much for their looks as for their rarity.

 

An Oliver GT would be one of the few non-Bolens tractors that I would consider having.

 

I really like the looks of them as they have very similar styling of the Oliver farm tractors of the same era.

They ask about 4 to 6,000 dollars at the stupid tractor swaps. Don't know if they ever get that or close, but sure is Nuts!

Well if it goes for anything remotely near that it won't be by me LOL    I figured maybe a grand if it was truly a Oliver.  

I like the Ford 120 and 140's in that body style and their cheaper

And people are getting bent out of shape for JD "Custom Color" tractors going for $6700.  Stupid does cross brand lines after all.  :smilewink:
