I would like to start a new section of the photo album section of pictures of Cletrac and Oliver dealerships. If you have any pictures of dealerships - either old pictures and/or how they look now - please send them to me and I will put them up on the site. Please give as much information as you can about the dealership and the pictures.

Thanks,

Blake

Hi Blake I have been very lucky and found a Herc motor for my AD. But when we where there, the old guy produced a book from Britstand dated 1954, they were the main manufractures of machinary and importers here in Aussie. It listed a number of dealers thoughout Australia, the book had a photo of there factory in Mascot Sydney. They boasted they were the largest manufacture in the Southern hemispere. Also photos of Cletracs and other machines. I am going back soon to see him again and will try to get a photocopy of it for you if you are interested.
Cheers Willo

Thanks Willo, that would be great. See if you can borrow the original and scan them as photocopies seldom come out good enough. But get what you can.

I just found a set of drawing for the ware loader.  They were with the OC-3 I got from my father-in-law.  The drawing plates are dated 1952 & 1953.  Are these someting that are common or worth posting to the list?  These appear to be the machine drawings for manufacturing assembly, not sure.
