Roger,I know that you had your heart set on a 5297 MM combine..Would a 5555 Oliver work? I know that you have several Oliver combines..

Today I found a decent 5555 Oliver that can be bought for $1750....Its missing the distributor from the engine,maybe an engine shield,and one rear wheel is gone.

The pictures arent great because theres too muck junk around it..

Did Oliver Ever build a 5555 or a 7800 with a diesel engine in it?

No, only gas V8's - the 5555 had a Chrysler 318 while the 7800 started out with a 383 Chrysler, later the 400 Chrysler. Basically the same motor with a bit larger bore.

The 1974 White full-line catalog mentions the 354 Perkins diesel as being an option on the 7800. I inquired once about this to White, they confirmed the diesel wasn't available until the 8800 came out in 1975.

It's a super secret test machine. I bet there is an X in the serial number! :lol:
My Uncle had a 5555 Oliver combine when I was a kid. I too thought it was a cool looking combine as a kid.

Its an 80 acre junk yard thats filled to capacity...Thats another reel sitting up there..I think the 5555 has around a 18 ft header on it? The header would have to be pulled off to get it out of there.

I have to agree with oliverkid on the 5555 being the best looking combine made. A man 30 miles west of here bought 2 - 715 IHC combines new. He had them pinstriped. Super sharp looking, just wish I had taken a picture of them.

I wish that was closer to me. I think the 5555 was one of the best looking oliver combines built, and a rare one at that. I guess ill have to put it on the someday list. I working on getting a 7300 diesel right now.

I would love to have the 5555 Oliver. But, as always I am "financially embarrassed". I have a Love affair going on with my house, I have scrimped and saved for years. Just finished the new roof, bathroom is next with a 48 inch by 60 inch shower. Going all out on this.

And some of you may have heard a rumor about me. It's not a rumor, it is true. I recently purchased a 560 IHC on LP Gas with a 4 bottom International Semi Mounted Plow. I know ... hard to believe but true. Don't want to start any "color wars" here but I think 560 IHC & 880 Oliver Checkerboard Grill were the two nicest looking tractors ever built. And this is from an old Moline man.

Time is my biggest problem. I have a lot going on in my life. On Monday I learned that a 16 year old girl I know took her first Chemo treatment for Cancer. I have been working late building a Ceder Chest from trees that were removed from her parents yard several years ago.

I am still working on the 5297. Stubborn ole cuss ain't I.

Well, that's the update from Ks.

I'm guessing that the 5555 Oliver will be there for awhile..Theres nothing wrong with a 560 LP..I have a 460 gas and a couple of 4 bottom FH plows....Theres lots of 560 LP's in that junk yard with the 5555..Sorry to hear about that 16 year old girl..Thats way too young..
