Description
The Oliver 77 came in three different models: standard, row crop, and orchard. This particular tractor is the standard model which sat in a fence row for 20 years before it was purchased and restored. There was a huge wasp nest filling the top of the motor which might have actually prevented the engine from rusting. Much of the body however was rusted as can be seen by the pitted surface. The rear wheel rims were also extremely rusted due to the tires being filled with calcium chloride and subsequently leaking, a practice commonly undertaken to add more weight for more stability and traction. The side panels gave the tractor a sleek design however they were often removed by farmers to prevent the engine from overheating.
