|oliver fan said: (quoted from post at 22:11:06 12/18/12) Several years ago there was an article in the HPOCA magazine that stated that there were no Cockshutt 2255's built. I helped with the article, but that statement was made by the writer of the article, not me. A short time later a guy in Canada, thinking I made that statement, sent me a picture of one. He knew the dealer who sold the tractor new and the farmer that still owned it. He also said that was the introductry model and the only Cockshutt 2255 built.|
The man is a big time Cockshutt collector and I don't doubt is word. He also said the next shipment all had the White name on them.
That is neat that there is one that says cockshutt. I would really like to see that picture.
I was looking at the 2255 parts breakdowns on agcopartsbooks and they list an Oliver, Cockshutt and White decal sets.
Some of the 2255's went to Australia as well as the 1870, 2270 and a very neat 1955
