Here's a couple pictures of my 145 (then and now.) I've only changed wheels and tires since I got it. As far as the older style Jacobsen-Oliver, it isn't a real production Oliver but it is still a neat looking garden tractor that will surely start up conversation. If it's your tractor, you're free to do with it as you wish. The Oliver guys will know the difference. Who knows, it could have been considered back when Oliver didn't yet offer Lawn & Garden. It has been said somewhere that Oliver was considering adding a 16hp model 165 to the lineup.

Anyway, no one can say that it wasn't ever thought about back then when Oliver didn't offer Lawn & Garden. Also, it has been said somewhere that Oliver was considering adding a 16hp model 165 to the lineup...

Yeah I've learned fast since I've taken this hobby up that it's a hobby probably best for single men.  Wives dont like spending money on "more tractor parts"  I've gone to the seperate account method, seems to work better.

Some times you have to be at the right place at the right time to get these tractors at a reasonable price, And then selling at a profit to move up to what you really want. My problem is I get too attached and want to keep them all. My other problem is I have been running across some rare tractors at a fair price and don't have the money to act on them.
