Question: What does the “70” represent in the Oliver model 70 tractor?
Answer: 70-octane. The engine in the Oliver 70 tractor was designed to run on 70-octane gasoline.
History: In 1935, the Oliver Farm Equipment Company introduced the Oliver Hart-Parr model 70 tractor. The smooth running 6 cylinder engine in the model 70 was designed to burn 70-octane gasoline. With its automotive styling, the Oliver 70 was a very attractive Tractor. Oliver 70 tractors were offered in two basic types, row-crop & Standard-tread. Within the two types the following models were offered:
In 1937, the styling of the 70 was updated and the Hart-Parr name was dropped. The Oliver 70 was manufactured from 1935 to 1948. There were about 63,000 Oliver 70 tractors manufacturing over the 13-year production run.
