I hardly ever post on the Oliver forum, I'm an ole Moline man from way back. I always wanted a 2255. I saw the top right corner of the cab sticking out from behind a row of cedar trees one day. Found the owner and made the deal. The side panels, front wheels and fuel tank are with it, just not on the tractor. I know it's not much to look at, but it used to belong to a neighbor and I can remember when it howled across the Kansas plains.

I own the 550 my father bought new in 1958. When I get the 2255 restored I think they will make a good looking pair.

This was the most productive tractor I ever owned;pulled a 14'265-Heavy Duty(26" disk pans-11"spacing) in tandem with a 14' leveling harrow(22" pans-7"-spacing)plus 4" DIA. steel pipe for a "starch&iron" finish. One pass behind the combines and this 3208 Cat-powered 2255 Oliver w/factory duals would trot pulling a 6-bottom breaking plow. These BRUTES were very popular tractors here in the panhandle of Florida.I wish you the best of luck with your restoration!

Hope you are able to rebuild it, I love those cherry bombs on the exhaust, bet it has a sound all its own. Good luck with it, heres a brochure to get you in the mood.

Oh yeah, that fuel tank is gone.

I have a 210 hp Cat 3208 to put in it. Not sure about the Hyd. on this thing. It will give me something to do.

I paid the same amount for this tractor as I pay for all my tractors - to much.
