OLIVER COMBINE IN MISSOURI AWAITS RESTORATION

This Oliver combine was made in the very early 1940s. The grain bin sits very low, and it used a rattle chain to separate the straw from the grain. I need the model number and would like any copies of original sales literature or manuals. Wesley Wright, R 3, Box 377, Independence, KS 67301; (316) 331-1674

WWII JEEPS PUT OUT TO PASTURE?

I have heard that after WWII, there was a company that manufactured farm equipment to be used with the old war Jeep. Does anyone have any information on this story? Robin Burkey, 5904 Moki Rd., Casper, WY 82604; (307) 234-4510

LOOKING FOR BULL LOGO

I'd like to hear from anyone who has seen or who has the logo that was on the three-wheel Bull tractor. It most likely was a steel plate, as my friend's Bull tractor has a place for something that was fastened to it with three or four holes drilled in the steel. I would appreciate even a picture of one. Leonard Larson, Viking, MN 56760

UNUSUAL MUSEUM PIECE RESEMBLES A THRESHER

We have this unknown piece of equipment in our Farm and Ranch Museum, and thought we might find out something about it. It resembles a thresher. I'm sure some parts are missing. You notice it has a single wheel in front. Bill Grissom, Rt. 4, Box 33, Elk City, OK 73644
