Oliver 60 Standard, Row Crop, & Industrial Tractors For Sale, Information, Serial Numbers
Oliver 60

By the end of the 1930s, Oliver’s large tractors were ranking nicely among competitors, giving them a good deal of success. Oliver had not yet built a small tractor, however, so they were losing out on what was a very quickly growing segment of the agriculture market. Allis-Chalmers, John Deere, and Farmall had done very well in the “small tractor” category, and Oliver wanted to begin competing.

Oliver released the Oliver 60 to the market in 1941. It was basically a smaller version of their previously popular Oliver 70. It had a four-cylinder, water-cooled engine, and a four-speed transmission. At a fast 1,500rpm, the PTO power was 18.3hp. The tractor weighed 2,450 pounds, nearly half the weight of the Oliver 70.

The Oliver 60 was available in three versions, with different production years: Standard, Row Crop, and Industrial. The Standard 60 had a four-wheel design, similar to that of an automobile. The Row Crop’s wheel placement was more like a tricycle design, with two smaller wheels next to each other in the front-center of the tractor. The Industrial version of the 60 is set up more like the Standard, with the same wheel placement. The color, however, is yellow instead of the standard Oliver green. When using the higher end of the transmission, the top speeds were faster, as well.

Serial numbers correspond with production year as follows:

1942: 410001-410500 | 1943: 410501-410510 | 1944: 410511-410616 | 1945: 410617-410910 1946: 410911-411310 |1947: 411311-411960 | 1948: 411961+

Row Crop:
1940: 600001-600070 | 1941: 600071 -606303 | 1942: 606304 -607394
1943: 607395-607525 | 1944: 608526-612046 | 1945: 612047-612627 | 1946: 615628-616706 1947: 616707-620256 | 1948: 620257+

1946: 460001-460300 | 1947: 460301-460500 | 1948: 460501-460600

    We have an Oliver 60 Row Crop that is either a 1941 or 1942. Where on the tractor would we be able to find the serial number. This tractor will be up for auction on Aug 13th in Wadena Minnesota so I would like to know where to find the serial number.

    I have been working on a 60 Oliver and have been asked several times what is the serial number of the tractor. Where is it located? I know the tractor was used to run a rock crusher (that we still have also). Please help me

    I have a grille shell from an Oliver 60 removed from an old 20s hotrod. The two grille sections and streamlined bullet nose shaped section are in good shape and rust free. the center divider panel is a flat piece of metal — not one with the Oliver script on it.

    For sale just south of Portland Oregon in Newberg. Pics upon request.

    I have an Oliver 60 row crop tractor for sale. I’m not sure what the serial number or year is yet. It does run and is in working condition. The engine needs a set of rings as it does burn a little oil. You can call me at 641 780 5 3 2 1 for more information. Serious inquiries only please.

    Older Oliver that my father had. I have been looking for a picture of one like it can cannot find one. My memory is that he got it used on the black market. I wouldn’t know what year he got it, but probably ’41 or ”42. The perplexing part of this is that all the Oliver 60s and 70s pictures I find have sort of an angled front/angled grill. My uncle had one like that, and my memory is that it was a 70. (did they go “77”?). My father’s had a squared-off front end; no electric anything on it, and no power takeoff, just the belt drive. Looking at Oliver history, I don’t see an accounting of what I suspect, but I suspect that he had one of the very first Olivers after they took over Hart-parr. It was row-crop, and he had both steel wheels front and back and standard rubber, which he kept on.
    Having written the above, I think I found the answer. Oliver-HartParr 1930-1937, http://www.johnweeks.com/tour/oliver/pages/hpoca2010-70-unstyled-narrow-steel-1.html

    Why isn’t there any information on the five speed transmission? Oliver made one in 44 or 45, I have one, and six speed after that but, no information on either. The only one available is the four speed and maybe the least number of tractors built. I have mine restored and everything is ok but, I would like some information on it.
