Neat pictures. I don't believe I've ever seen an Oliver SP chopper. I wonder if they made it? Last picture brings back memories- the kind I would like to forget. Worked on another farm for a short time. They had a new loader (1610 maybe?) on a 1750. I was remarking with my boss about how there were no grease fittings on the pivot points, and they were somewhat sloppy. His father (a real a$$) comes out to the shop. Son mentions to father what I just said. His reply- "who cares"? Short time later old man comes out to shop with invoice from local dealer I had signed. He questions a screwdriver purchase. He hadn't seen any new screwdriver around. I think it was 99 cents. I pulled the tiny pocket screwdriver out of my pocket and said "right here". I didn't last there very long.

Yes,Oliver made their own choppers. Those self propelleds were based on the combine design. Some thought they bought out Fox because the heads and a lot of parts were interchangable. At one time Oliver tried to buy Fox,but somebody at the top at Fox wouldn't allow the sale because Oliver wasn't Wisconsin based company. Crazy.
