104 year old Hart Parr Great story

Recommended Posts

We have some really good friends that have a nice tractor collection. The collection is of mostly Olivers. They have around 25 or so tractors. They do all their own mechanic work and restorations. They were asked to put on a small show for a local tractor ride. They are not the show off kind, so it took some doing to get them to even do this. The Hart Parr is a one owner one farm tractor. It was unloaded off the train and drove 2 1/2 miles to the farm in 1915. They have the original bill of sale operators manual and other items. The tractor was used on the farm and also was used to pull a road grader to maintain the local roads. The tractor has never left their farm. The story on the Hart Parr is more cool than the tractor itself to me. I have a couple pictures. Enjoy, and by the way, all the current machinery on the farm is CASEIH.

OK, I'll admit, I'm not a huge Oliver fan but that's just cool. Especially about the Hart Parr!

Thanks for sharing!

There used to be a guy on YouTube.... I believe by the name of carpenter? Who was super knowledgeable on all things Oliver.  Unfortunately he seems to have pulled all his videos.  He had spoke in depth on the infamous 310 and he certainly felt they were a worthwhile motor

Some of the bigger Oliver's had Detroit Diesels.

You could hear them working for miles.

Started in the Super 99 and then the 990 and newer.

Lets see, more gears in the transmission, a sweet running engine with two more cylinders, easy steering and live PTO.

If I wasn't an IH man, I would be Oliver.

This is a super collection. Thanks for sharing.
