That is sure going to look sweet when you get it done! I like the looks of these, just none around here.

That's a fantastic looking GT you have. The love you have for the project really shows!

Can't wait for the pics with the wheels on, new tires always make a tractor look different.

The Portland swap meet yielded some great parts for the Panzer. A new set of 3 rib front tires. A tool box , gas tank and front grader blade. A factory seat also came along. New front wheel bushings from Dandys. Things are coming along some. Drilling beans and planting corn are done now. But making hay are still there. So maybe in a week or so I can get back to really focusing on this project again.

More progress has occurred! Engine is mounted and seat is on for good. Battery tray has been manufactured. Hopefully in a couple of weeks I can drive a Panzer for the 1st time. I did add my own touch of some hand painted pin stripes. I like to be different. I will remind everyone of what it looked like the day it came home. Enjoy....

Had the engine running today. Few more odds and ends and this part will be comeing to an end. I'll be looking for a mower deck then. Sure would be nice to be able to use this for something like mowing.

Man, that's just perfect.

Finally had the opportunity to drive this Panzer today and I see what the craze is now. What a nice machine they made so long ago. Won't buy a new one that is this nice. Now I can't wait to find another one. Hopefully with a kohler on it.
I'll try to get everyone a pic out side in the sun light for the last one.

Wow! This restoration rocks! I applaud your effort. Unfortionately I'm sure my resto-mod is going to take much longer than yours. LOL

It sounds like we got a couple of guys going to be diving into doing mower decks on Panzers.

There was several variations of mower decks on these things. More changes throughout the years than anything else. If you're real serious about doing it, then I'd recommend getting in touch with Ed Helman from this orginization http://www.cvaema.org/

Not sure if he's a mower expert, but he has several he may sell. he also has one of most every kind of Panzer, and I learned alot just by seeing their collection. In fact, I learned how this pile of parts I have turns into a sleeve hitch attachment just by looking at it assembled on one he had in the Chambersburg, PA show. If either of you don't mind making the trip to central PA, I'd recommend getting in touch with him to see his collection so you know which end is up. His contact information is also here: http://panzertractor...artSources.html

Glad to see so much Panzer activity. These recent resto's are fantastic.
