my blue book says 99 gm was made from 54-58 wich would make them all styled i beleive. i have checked with 5 other oliver-cockshutt colectors that i know the general concencus from them is its a tractor someone has repowered. one collector thought it could be a prototype but leaned more toward the repower idea. a serial # would help, anyone else have any ideas?
I do beleive it is a repower. Like I said this is the first oliver I've seen. There were several kits available for case and other models. This was an aftermarket instillation kit. Some dealers installed them. I have seen a Case L with a 3-71 detroit. Mainly I have seen them in the LA tractors. I have a friend that has a LA with a 4-71. He had original papers where it was installed. I have seen pictures where a 2-71 detroit was fitted in the Case Model D, a very rare find. Heard not many 2-71 exist.
