Looks a lot like the 1962 I bought.
You have a nice tractor there. You'll have a good sandblasting to deal with, but everything looks solid.
Not only did you get a mower deck with it, which is a big deal on it's own, but it still even has the rear rollers on it which is usually the first thing to go (fall off and don't get replaced)

Did you buy that in Charlestown Rhode Island? The red truck in the back looks familiar.
i will be picking this up in the near future, he guy is holding on to it for me. My tractor of choice is Bolens but i think the Panzer is a wicked cool looking tractor. Can anybody help with identifying this model tractor.

what would be the difference between a T-70 and the T-70B that i see in other posts?
They say that the B is for Briggs, but what they really did is just put a slightly bigger "easy spin" briggs in the T70B model. I've honestly never been around a T70 model without the "B"

...my dad and i like old rusty stuff.
I can't imagine why you're a member here!
That looks like a great candidate for restoration! Keep us in the loop and post some more pics when you get it home!

well i'm hopefully going up the end of the month to pick up the tractor, is there anything on the Panzers i should look for as far as being impossible to repair or replace? any info would be great.
You asked what to look for... From the pics, it looks like all the stuff that's machined special for a panzer is there... Rear axle, drive, driven pulley, engine pulley, mower...
But I can offer this advice that may help: I can't tell from the pictures whether the front wheels are worth saving, but you probably know that thing is going to be tough to wheel around w/o them inflated. If you want to take a set along with you, the front spindle shafts are 3/4 inch. The original wheels did not have bearings in them so expect the shaft to be worn quite a bit. If you take along a set of front wheels, and you want to go to bearings in the front, then take along a dremel or something that you can smooth out some of the gouges in the spindle shafts. You'll also need some side cutters to help get the cotter pin out (which holds the wheel on the spindle).
When I replace the wheels with a set with bearings... I found that I then had some extra shaft so I shortened mine by about 3/4 of an inch. but you can get to that later.
