Checkerboard Grill is a collection of magazine ads detailing Oliver tractors and farm equipment. When Oliver introduced each tractor with the “Checkerboard Grill,” they took a big step forward with their new design. Some of these tractors lasted through the end of Oliver and into the early White Series with only minor upgrades, which is a credit to their good engineering. Their advertising agency put a different look or accent on things as time went by. This is not a complete history, but a look at some of the ads from this time period. You will find many good images to use for restoring your project. All ads and images are from the personal collection of Tim Putt.
