Picked up these two panzers T205 and a T70Bes 205 seems to be pretty much original, T70 is in amazing condition but I don't think the motor is original. The color is off as well as a couple of other minor things but no great amount of wear and tear on it. the 205 has much more obvious wear and tear. The engine looks to be original the only thing that jumped out at me was the foot rests.

Your right! 2 tractors is a collection.

What is the correct engine for the T70?

I think they should have come with a 5 3/4 hp or 6 hp but not quite certain but I know the 8 that is in it can't be right it doesn't fit quite right they had to cut the steering shaft and move it over slightly..also the motor has a starter that is direct to the engine and I think most of the old ones had starter generators connected by a belt. Either way it runs great and will look even better after I paint it the right color.

Wow. Very very nice! You are right about the color and motor of the 70, but so what, it is a fine old tractor. My T-75 has an old 7 hp. Briggs and Stratton pull start on it. That big red Copar is a real rare one too.
Yep, you have a fine collection started there! Congrats!

Those are some very fine looking Panzers! The steering shafts on a few models purposely had a notch bent or welded into it to allow for the shaft to clear the engine. The engine is definitely not original, but who cares! If it starts, runs and drives you have a complete tractor. I am really liking the front wheels on the T70. They give it a kick-butt stance! The Copars are getting harder and harder to come by. Welcome to the club!

Thanks Clint I have seen some with that bend in them it runs great and 205 is a great GT. That would be Harrisburg PA fxrs55 good catch on that I stopped for lunch coming back from Maryland. Thanks JBBR I agree pretty much but I am going to sandblast both and paint both just cause I'm like that (muleheaded) I am on the look out for a 3 wheeled model as well I missed one near Philly i was going to see it when the seller called to tell me he sold it that afternoon.

I have never seen a T205 in person. That looks to be nice size tractor
next to the T70. They both look nice, good luck with them.

That is a very nice addition to your collection! You are very lucky to have been able to find this fine piece of history. With a little work, I'm sure she will be resurrected back to life! Thanks for the pictures and good luck!
