As a matter of interest...Last fall I wrote regarding the number of Cockshutt RC 770 's built.. Upon further research I discovered that my unit with s/n 126129 721 was the very FIRST one built (Nov. 30/62) and the ONLY one built in 1962....it would seem this tractor was a test run model (built from existing plant stock as noted on the build card) for the new 1963 RC 770 models.This was confirmed by the Floyd County Museum.. EXCITING . I thought you folks might find this of interest ..a rare find !!

I am the newsletter editor for the Ontario Goodison Oliver Connection and one of our members father was a Oliver and Cockshutt dealer in Glencoe Ontario and he sent me a list of tractors that the dealership sold between 1932 and 1996 and your tractor is on the list.It does'nt say when it was sold or to who but it is listed under new sales Cockshutt 770 HC/RC serial # 126129
Hope this is a interest to you

I looked at an Oliver Super 66 last summer and one of the rear axle housings on that one was blank. I don't know if it was repaired using a part that was intended for a Cockshutt or what the deal was.

Interesting stuff...My tractor was shipped to Cockshutt Farm Equipment Co. Ltd. , Branford, Ontario on Jan .8, 1963. I haven't been able to track which Branch Office or Dealer received it from there. I Bought the tractor from a farmer in the London ,Ontario area. He said he picked it up second hand from a Ford Tractor Dealership (their dealer stickers were still on the tractor when I Bought it). That Dealership closed ..so no information ! I new the tractor was relatively early BUT had no idea it was the first one built..
Hope this is helpful.

No....I am not saying that I have the only Cockshutt RC 770 with a steel bar grill and no flat top fenders- YOU SAID THAT !..I do know of other RC 770's with a steel bar grill and clam fenders.
All I can tell you is the following 1. Production records from the Floyd County museum (of which I have a copy) shows the first RC 770 built was serial number 126 129 721.

2. The build card shows the serial number ,motor number , date built ( Nov. 30 1962), a number one , branch order number , and shipping date (Jan. 8 1963). The build card also states plant stock.

3. This tractor has the following:
Steel bar grill
Oliver stamped clam fenders
Oliver stamped on the manifold
Oliver rowcrop on the axles
Charles city did the reasearch and confirmed it was the first Cockshutt RC 770 produced. The next run of these tractors was in mid February 1963 when six units were produced.
I do not know how those tractors or subsequent ones were equipped.

Where was yours sold from originally??

This makes more sense as to why in your previous post you said that yours had oliver in the stampings.

These are my two 63 models, both being original paint and original owner machines when I got them. Neither one has oliver on the fenders, or manifold, or on the axles. I need to get the build cards, but from info of a local oliver guru that also has a Cockshutt 770 with the bar grill, his and mine that is not restored yet is from the first run of 6 produced. The restored one of mine is a later serial number from another run.

Well I have some comments and questions. I can remember going to what was kind of like a forerunner of the later "Growing O show in Columbus. I don't remember if it was in late 62 or early 63 as there were Christmas light out yet. They told us about changes to the grills on the 550 & 770 tractors and they also showed us a "kit" that was available if you wanted to up-date those if you had some in inventory. I have some notes somewhere this was to occur on 1963 tractors. So do you have the only 770 Cockshutt with the steel bar grill and no flat top fenders? Please send me an e-mail. J.

That's a pretty cool find. That'd be a good article for one of the Oliver collector magazines.
