Owners Larry & Tonia Elliott

Larry & Tonia Elliott

Owner Larry Elliott was raised on Oliver tractors helping his Dad and Granddad with the farming with Oliver tractors. At age 11 Larry was driving and receiving many first place trophies pulling their Oliver 88.

In 1995 Larry restored his first Oliver and the hobby began. With his great appreciation for the Oliver name and his constantly increasing and vast knowledge of the Oliver facts every tractor is restored to its correct original state. This hobby has grown into a full time profession with over 100 tractors restored. Larry’s passion and pride is shown in his work and philosophy that every restoration must be better than the previous. His work is typically to purchase a “dead row” tractor and bring it back to life restoring it to museum quality.

As an owner brings in their project and shares the story of their tractor Larry quickly finds the passion and importance of the tractor; providing excellent quality to bring pride to its owner.

Tonia grew up a farmer’s daughter and granddaughter.  With farming in her blood she knows her way around the field and equipment with her dad letting her shell corn solo at age 9. Living on a dairy farm her jobs were many.  After working in a factory for 26 years and OliversOnly growing quickly she now works full time with Larry.

OliversOnly Restorations – Does the name say it all?
