Its really not to bad ; it runs and moves and still mows grass. From what I've read there weren't many of these built.

Nice ones at shows in bigger sizes, are $5000!!  Only made Olivers for one or two years, seem to be highest priced Jake offerings, much more than the MM or White as an example.

Not a lot of them, but there weren't a lot of 1973 Fuchsia Cadillacs made either and they really aren't collector items.
I agree that someone will want to buy the tractor, and that they are seeking an Oliver version to round out their herd, but without condition pics and a realistic idea of run ability, it's all just speculation.

Take any info you get from GT collectors with a grain of salt. You should try to get information from "disinterested" parties. GT owners are GREAT for technical and historical info, but they tend to overinflate the value and sometimes the importance of their "babies" (understandable, I have done the same thing, so don't ask me about Sears or Massey). You may even find that guys will provide lower than fair market numbers on purpose to keep the market in check and the hobby affordable.
The other side of the coin is to be VERY wary of inflated online prices on EBAY and Craigslist. Just because people list or even sometimes accidentally sell things at inflated prices beyond value, doesn't mean the next guy can.

In the end, you will be able to sell it for what the market will bear, and visual appearance, condition, location and if it runs or not are all biggies. Without more info, any numbers offered would be a wild guess or would be without substance.

Welcome to our forum. I have no idea what it is worth. Are you asking because you are thinking about selling it? We would love to see some pics of it.

Well, it's good to meet the girl. She does look pretty complete. Little cosmetic stuff, a seat a muffler and some rubber by the looks.
Around here, Lawn Mowers don't seem to fetch the $ that their Bigger siblings can capture. Even the less common ones.

I am not the best resource on Oliver stuff, but if I had to hazard a guess, I would say top dollar $200-300 in good running condition here in NW Pa.

You have parts from two different tractors there, the Town and Country grille does not belong on an Oliver model. That will affect the value negatively.

:iagree: I attend a lot of auctions and from what I've seen sell around here I'd say the same price range goes for my area as well.

 

That being said welcome to the forum! Looks like you've got a pretty complete mower that should make a great starting point in getting your feet wet in this great hobby we enjoy so much.

I agree.  If you look closer at it the Oliver logo is directly above town and country badge and it looks to be all one decal.

I was under the impression the Town and Country badge was for the White badged models. Thanks for the correction.
