Description
Beginning in the 1920s Canadian customs regulations stipulated that for tractors manufactured in the United States to be sold in Canada some of the manufacturing had to take place within the country. Thus in 1920 the John Goodison Threshing Company reached an agreement with the Hart-Parr Company to distribute tractors in Ontario. Hart-Parr merged with Oliver in 1929 and the agreement continued with Oliver sending tractors to the Goodision plant in Sarnia. The manufacturing process on Canadian soil often amounted to adding a Goodison decal and a metal plate to the tractor as is the case with this 1944 Oliver Standard 70.
