This is my newly restored 1951 Oliver Row Crop 77. The Oliver 77 was the first tractor my Dad and I each drove as kids on the farm. So naturally we restored this one together. We did it over the summer of 2016. I learned so much from my Dad during the restoration. He’s had Olivers & Whites his whole life and is a walking encyclopedia of them. A few of the highlights of this 77 are power steering, dual hydraulics, and we custom fit flat top fenders from a 1650 to the 77 to add our own touch. We recently purchased an Oliver 770 to restore together, and can’t wait to get started. Father/son time doesn’t get any better!
