OLIVER MODEL 70 – c. 1948

The 70 Model was made in the USA and introduced into the tractor market in 1935. It was tractor with a compact six-cylinder engine with quite advanced styling and the radiator protected by a curved sheet metal and dummy grill.

Technical Specifications: 4-stroke, 6-cylinder, petrol/kerosene engine. Bore of 3.125”and stroke of 3.375” it produced 23.39hp at the belt and 21.16hp at the drawbar running at 1,500rpm. Gears: 6 forward and 2 reverse. Weight was 3500lbs.   

History: This tractor came from a small farm in Toodyay. The manifold and many body panels were missing. A large truck radiator standing on wooden blocks was in use in place of the original. At some time in its life an alternator had replaced the generator and the water pump had been modified to take Holden parts. The finished tractor now on display in the Museum is really a combination of the original and a second tractor, a 1946 model purchased from Bullsbrook.
