I have always kind of had a thing for Olivers ever since owning the oliver 77 I had. I seen this the other day and thought it was pretty cool. Id love to have one made like that one of these days.10903903_1583532698549934_5945313053922586480_o.jpg

That thing is really nice!  I love Olivers of that era and have never seen a miniature of one.  Beautiful workmanship!

That looks a lot like Kurt Smith's tractor, but he made a 1650, not a 1855

That grille looks like a lot of work. And the rear rims.

All they can do is look pretty and show off the skills of the builder!

No one would want to get them dirty!

I'm ok with that.  I have a couple of tractors that sit around and look pretty, what's one more?

That one is definitely a nice one... A father and son-in-law in Wisconsin built it. I did the decals for it...

Of all of the tractors I've made, there are only 2 that actually work...

 

This one is mine...

(the only time my tractor is clean is when it's at a show...) :)

And this one was a brand new John Deere that I took a torch to. The owner uses it to mow this 5 acre yard, and do yard chores with. It has a belly mower that isn't in the photo...

Other than those 2 tractors... All 30 of my other tractors are for parades and shows.

 

I am talking to a guy right now who may have me build an Oliver 2250 that would have a belly mower under it so he could mow the yard with it. Hopefully that will work out, but I never count on anything until I have a tractor in my shop. :)

Kurt
