I am working on a book on crawlers and dozers that will have a chapter on Cletrac and Oliver.  I t will include a table of all Cletrac models with basic specs - years made, HP, weight, engine model.  I have everything nailed down except for the MG-1, MG-2, and MG-3.  Anyone have the specs for these models?

Do you have any information of the Military Cletracs built by John Deere. I am also a member of the 2-Cylinder club and in one of the magazine there was a picture of a military Cletrac going down the Deere assembly line. What all is your book going to cover?

The book covers Caterpillar (1950-1980), Cletrac and Oliver, Deere, Eimco, Euclid and Terex and International Harvester, and other less well known makes, along with chapters on wheel dozers and blade manufacturers.  Each chapter will be about 20 pages with most models illustrated, most in color. It is the second volume of "Classic Vintage Crawlers and Dozers" by myself and Don Heimburger, which is available now. Like Volume I, there will be tables for all models with the basic specs.  I try to make each book very well illustrated PLUS lots of data and information on each machine.

Roger, if you are writing anything about American Tractor Co., Terratrac, or Case, you might want to go to this link of information I wrote a while back.

Please do provide credit for anything you use in your book.

My gramps Howard van Driest was Experimental Engineer at Cletrac and Oliver Corporation. After the plant closed, he and my uncle started an excavating business, initially using Cletrac and Oliver Crawler tractors.

Blake,
Thanks for the tip.  Unfortunately, Volume I which is in print, includes American Tractor and Case, along with Allis-Chalmers and Caterpillar to 1949.  
By the way, I think your website is excellent.  You've obviously put a lot of thought and effort into it.
