The Oliver 99 was built from 1937 till 1953. It was built in Charles City , Iowa. It replaced the 28/44 Hart - Parr. The 99 and the 90 were similar except for the fuel they used. The 99 had a 4 cylinder Oliver engine which had a displacement of 443 cubic inches and produced 52 hp. There were three different 99's built. The first was the model we are featuring today. Next the Fleetline model with the 6 cylinder Waukesha engine and finally the model with the GM diesel engine. The serial number of our 99 is #515429. It was built in 1949. We made one tractor from two. They came from a salvage yard in Munich, N.D.
