Nothing that small but they did make a 555. Was changed to 5 Star to begin constellation series. Massey already had a 555 in same year so that is why MM changed.

The Moline was going to be a 550, but was later changed to the 5 star. Oliver had a 550, and Farmall or IH may have had a 550 also.

Cockshutt had 550 in 1958 which was not the same as Oliver 550. Must have been why MM changed to 5 Star.

I don't think they ever made a 555. They did do a 550 though. I have a parts book somewhere for it and it has a picture of it on the front. You are right, it was what became the 5 Star.

I was looking at the Jensen photos a while back and I think they had a 5 Star factory picture with low platforms like the 445s were....Im glad they raised them. I have a parts book on the 550 as well.

In comparing the 5 star and 550 parts manuals, the only difference I noticed was the decal. I need to find that decal. I have an lp 5 star with serial #7, and 283-E engine with serial #2, I wonder if this might have been a 550. Has anyone ever seen a 550 serial tag?
