Cletrac or Oliver?

Postby kmiles4441 » Wed Nov 14, 2012 9:18 pm

I just purchased a HG42 and my question is whether its an Cletrac or if it's Oliver? Its painted orange with Oliver decals, but it has Cletrac gauges. Here is the serial# 28 GA 846. Let me know what you think.

Your HG is a 1947 so it would have been an Oliver Cletrac HG. Oliver bought Cletrac in 1944. They dropped the Cletrac name around 1950,51.

Is this the correct color or should it have been green?
I saw a post on another website that said you could of ordered these cletrac orange, industrial yellow, or green up to 1951 is there any truth to that?

They could be either Cletrac orange or Oliver Green. Oliver had both Farm and Industrial dealers so the paint could vary with the dealer it went to. Also to sell a tractor they would paint it any colour you wanted !!
