Oliver OC 46 (1956)

We bought this little machine three years ago at another local auction. I had been on the look out for a front loader and thought the tracks would come in handy in the winter. And which boy hasn't ever dreamed of driving a machine on tracks.
This is a three cylinder gasoline Oliver OC 46, built in 1956. It does need some engine work. Currently, it will only run for 15 to 20 minutes before it gets tired and gives up. This spring I will have a look at it and try to get it running properly. To see some nicely restored machine like this:

Hi Jos,

Very nice! You're doing a great job in restoring these beautiful machines. When does the museum open up?

That oc-46 looks to be a series b wich I believe started in 1962. The oc-4 did not come out until 1956 and the first year had a four cylinder flat head gas engine hercules IXB3.The hood and grill were styled like the oliver wheel tractors on this model. In 1958 they were available with the hercules GO130 three cylinder gas engine.
