Very good pictures rrlund on that era,but is funny compared to JD-Case-AC lit.of that time frame of no cabbed tractors to speak of shown.We had 3 good Oliver and 2 MM dealers until the mid 70s and after the 55 seris came out everything was downhill from there.We only had one White(very strong) dealer left(within 50mi.) when Agco took over which they (Agco)then closed down because they wouldn't move and put up a mega $$$ building.Now we are 100-150Mi.from a dealer that will try to help with parts-service on Olivers.

We lost our closest dealer when the whole Texas Instruments debacle happened. Luckily we had one as close as any other brand,and that's not saying much,about 38 miles away,that survived. They try their darndest to keep the Oliver and Whites going,even if they have to go with after market suppliers to get parts.

The White thing with parts seemed to be one of the biggest downfalls.The last dealer,who was a 3rd.or forth generation dealer often told us at the end,he couldn't get everyday breakdown parts 2-3 weeks or more later,but things he might sell every yr.or 2-3 he would get overnight.Now unless the farmer is dead or fully retired,the loyal Oliver guys have went 50-50 JD or CIH-FNH and not Agco.
