Oliver 125 Town & Country Garden Tractor. Professionally restored, includes deck (not in picture), original owners manual, and original parts manual. $5,000 or best offer.

Better than new for sure. But at $5000 it should be. I admit that I don't know the value of this GT. Would like to see what you guys think. Thanks.

The grill and seat pan look the same(but different color) as my Ford LGT open sides. Good Luck, Rick

Rick, I think Oliver was made by Jacobsen, so that might explain the resemblance.

The beginning of the end for the GT hobby. American Pickers will buy them for more than we can afford. Then that TV restoration guy will restore them for an arm and your first child. Rich people will buy them to put out by their lawn fountain or in their sitting room.

 

Maybe I'll keep my eye out for old tricycles. . . . .     or vacuum cleaners.

He doesn't really want to sell it...his wife wants him to, thus, the incredible asking price.  I've had my pickup on craigslist for 4 months...at a price too high to get so much as a call :thumbs:

 

Really though, I could see a sky-high price for something ultra-rare, at auction or something, but this one would have to be in original skin to get it IMO.  When rare tractors are simply a rebadge of a very common brand, a 'restoration' could simply be a clone...how could a restoration of one get the tall dollar?

Lower production models are harder to find than the Ford / Jacobsen counterparts. I understand a higher price but not that high.

Thanks for sharing that. As I had mentioned, not sure what they are going for. Watch for Ford's painted green (Oliver) or yellow (MM) LOL!

Yep! Going asking price at most shows I've gone to. Don't think all orig paint on most. Oliver's had most different metal of all those other brands and think only made couple years???  Think the rarity is what makes them more?   I know fellas that have done Jakes to be MM's, but w/out the correct tags, don't bring much money.  Even a basic 10hp MM gets close to $1200 not even real nice.  The Whites are rare too. I had one for awhile, just like in that picture.  Think only 1 year on those too.

That's the truth.  Hoaxes of rare brands have existed for forever on many of the big tractor brands.
