The restoration of my Oliver 770: With assistance from my dad, I went through every mechanical aspect of the tractor. Every component was inspected to look for broken or worn out parts. Anything that needed replacement was replaced with a new factory part. The drive train and engine were completely rebuilt and have new parts. Making sure we took authenticity into account, I made sure to try and rebuild switches and different components so they would look like they did when they rolled off the factory line in 1965. Finally, I made sure to get the original Oliver paint codes for Oliver Green and Clover White - the two colors that were used to paint the tractor.
