new toy yesterday

Postby km » Sun Feb 25, 2007 5:12 pm

went to a neighbor's farm auction yesterday. Came home with a 1650 Oliver gas tractor. Nice conditon, runs good, not restored., he did repaint the grill and wheels with white paint, not the correct clover white. I want to repaint them. the rest of the paint is original. He has had this tractor as long as I lived around here(since 1972). He told me he got it new in 1966 but he thought it was a 1965 model.. My serial number check shows it is a 1966. Won't be restoring it immediately. it may be cleaned up a little and the wheels and grill repainted. will be using it for making hay .
Look for it at some of the local shows in northern Indiana.

Looks like a nice tractor, I love my 1650. I use it to cut and rake hay with. It seems to have the right speed for these applications

That's a dandy! Nice picture.
When I ffirst saw your post, I thought you bought it from the auction I went to saturday in Sycamore Il. The guy wasw all White/Oliver. Had a White 160, White 105, Oliver 1655 gas and 1650 gas. Everything there was pristine and brought good $

ever since I sold my white 2-70 diesel several years ago I was wanting another Oliver product in that size. the 2-70 had over 12,0000 hours and a problem in the over/under when I sold it. this tractor isn't perfect, but still very nice for 41 years old... and less than 2000 hours.

Where's Syracuse?

That looks like a 1650 that used to come to the Gibson Co. Fair a few years back.

Something about duals on a tricycle (heck on anything...lol)

I don't think this one came to your fair. we are in north central IN. about half way between Fort Wayne and South Bend. I have known the owner of this tractor for 35 years. He bought it new in 1966 and it never went further than a few miles from his farm. (to the mill with grain) Oliver 1650 was a popular tractor and there are a lot of them still working.

Bugger looks nice. I've always has a thing for narrow front tractors with duals.
