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.
