I don't own one but I did find this one for sale.  For a cool 5 grand it could be yours.

That one's not a real Oliver though. Probably a painted up Jacobsen.

I think all of the Oliver GTs were made by Jacobsen but I am not sure any of them were the style of the one Jack posted.  I've never seen one like that but that doesn't mean they don't exist!

Yes, they were made by Jac but not in that early style.  Pretty sure they don't exist.

They were only made for a couple years and are all tube frames.

Ok, Update.  I found this on tractor data .com.

 

 

Oliver Tractor History  

oliver-125-1.jpgOliver branded lawn tractors were built by Jacobsen. The tractors were only built in 1972 because White Motors consolidated its tractor lines under the White brand in 1973.

KennyP is correct,  the Olivers and red White town and country's were built on the tube frame chassis . From what a few of us have found there may have been around 400-450 built 72-73. Ranging in size from the 75 to the 145, with the 105 being the most common. There are a lot of differences from a Ford or Jake if you know what your looking at.

 

If anyone has any serial numbers and tractor models, and would be willing to share them ,I started a registry a couple a years ago to see how many did survive .
