I can't believe how much these Olivers are going for.  That's the third one I have seen between here and eBay actually selling for prices we roll our eyes about on other brands.

What makes them so special? Not many built, or built better or what?

I can hardly imagine what the new grill would be worth that is included.

I sort of thought the frames looked the same, They're pretty dang neat. Were they made in the same hp options as the fords?   WOW that was a dumb question now I see one's a 105 and and 125

An example of supply and demand, Ford's and Jacobsen's are fairly easy to find but Oliver's, Minneapolis Moline's and White's are much harder to find. They are all built by Jacobsen are pretty much the same tractor. But a Oliver or MM can go for 2-5 times what a Ford would sell for.

From what I hear from those in the know about these tractors, an awful lot of the green ones for sale out there started off blue....

They would be without a serial tag?

They would need to patina it to make it look authentic.
