Welcome to GTTalk. I have no idea on the Oliver. Never seen one up this way. I'm sure someone will have an idea. It might help if you posted some pictures to show the condition. Here's a short video on how to add pictures to posts.

Welcome to the forum!

 

Any Oliver GT is a win in my book.  They are pretty scarce in my neck of the woods.

Does it look like this little guy?

Rule of thumb on any machine is it's "Only worth what your willing to pay for it".

 

 

IMO Since it's an LT "Lawn Tractor" and not a GT "Garden Tractor" I would not spend more than $400 for 1 in perfect condition.And it would have to be in Perfect operational condition at that price.Paint is no big deal.

I'd give $500 for it if in good running condition if you would want to sell it.

Value depends so much on condition that its near impossible to suggest its worth without alot more info... but dont get your hopes up... even in prestine restored condition it would be hard to get $1000 out of it, and if it has to be pushed into a trailer you'll be lucky to get $150 unless you can find someone that needs it for parts.

 

Little tractors like these are usually more valuable to the owners as working machines than they are to sell because restoring them often costs considerably more than the end value.

I would probably pat between $500 and $800 for it running and driving.

The Oliver garden tractors I would pay between $1000 and $1500.

Unfortunately I cant seem to find any as they are pretty rare.


A Minneapolis Moline garden tractor would be gold for me.

What kind of condition is it in? How much of it is original? Where are the pictures?

As of now, I'm putting value at $65.
