Well,the 8160 is one of a kind.

If somebody asked me to pick the one that would get the most looks at a show and would likely be the only one in the US,I'd probably have to pick the SAME built 462.

Even knowing what it is,I always thought the G1355 was the toughest looking Oliver ever. The 1865 is a rare bird that looks tough and would be on my list too,along with the 2655.

I wish I could find the 500 that the neighbor bought new back in the early 60s. I know where it got traded in on a new Ford,but nobody seems to remember where it went. A 600 would be even more rare than that.

Where is this tractor located at? I've never seen or heard about this one! Sure does look cool!

30 years ago, or so, there was a 500 on the local tractor lot, and it sat around there FOREVER. Problem was, the sales guy was a dyed-in-the-wool Oliver man, and he thought the Oliver badged David Brown was slightly less than worthless, so his sales efforts were not the best. Don't know what ever happened to it.

As far as the Oliver I'd like, I guess I'd go with the 995 Lugmatic, too. Just don't wanna pay "market price", LOL!

The 600 is even harder to find. Last one of those I saw was about 10 years ago on a jockeys lot north of West Plains Mo. I was going too fast when I noticed it to stop and look.

Never seen a 8160 before looks like the fenders are like a white fenders on the cab but the rest of the cab looks differant, and the grill is like the 55s with the lights, how many of these were built, were they just like a 1855 or a 1955 besides the cab or were they completely differant, what motor was used in it.

It's one of a kind. An 1855 with a 5.9 Cummins and a cab from a 6000 series White.

Okay, so were there a few made or did someone just put it together. Neat tractor though.

It's a custom job,not factory. Don't know where he came up with the number designation,but he had a heck of a nice set of decals made up for it,black background with gold lettering. The hood was custom made to mate up with the cab. Super nice job.
