Hello, I'm from the states and was curious if there might be any interest in the two tractors that I have. Both are diesel and both where shipped here. I am told that there are very few 600's left at all. Both tractors run great and would perfect to restore. No major issues, mostly age.
Thanks for your time.

Hi Gregory the 500 went from Ser no 100001 Feb 1960 to Ser 102148 May 1963 -- the 600 from Ser 449800 Dec 1962 to Ser 453700 May 1963 so not so many of the 500s, there is very few in New Zealand eaither brought in later or different grill and paint on red ones. cheers Geoff

A friend of mine has 1 of only 6 Oliver's bought into Oz but the model escapes me. @ of these were delivered locally to us in the Manning Valley and it runs a V6? GM 2 stroke. When he got it, it did run but was smokey. However a weekend of dragging Lanz Bulldog tractors backwards in tractor pulls took care of the smoke and now it runs sweet as can be. The fuel tanks are a part of the mud guards at the top and add ballast over the wheels. It is a true green machine this one.
