Crazy thing, its his birthday weekend and he buys me a trailer full of Panzer and parts :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: I'm been virtually laid off, so all we had for him was cake-n-party...

So, we started by working on the tires so I can roll it around. Got one of the rears off and found these stampings inside, anybody know what they represent?

Panzer Wheel Stamps 101212.jpg
the first one seems to be an upside down A over back to back R's
The second one is clearly a M on top of a W ( or vice-versa)

SANY0039.JPG
Panzer, 8 hp Briggs engine loose, deck, snow blade, sleeve hitch, 3 Brinly plows,and 2 Brinly cultivators all packed on the trailer 300 miles one way.

I have to agree, he is a keeper, just got off the phone with him he got home safe even though a semi dump crossed the center median and nearly got him in a downpour today. My connection wasn't real good not sure if he was still in Pa. or had passed Breezewood into Md. Either way I'm real thankful that God gave me him as a big brother and spared him again tonight. To realize we can loose all of our fun and good-times in a matter of seconds helps remind me that we need to be vigilant in praying for our loved ones.

Ya, I don't know exactly what it is, but these Panzers just reach out and grab ya somewhere inside, doesn't seem to matter what your favorite brand is, ya just want to add one of these to the mix.

Did he get any photos of this?

The first one is the Union Atlantic Rail Road. The second is Montgomery Ward. I'm sure of it.

Don't know, he is back on base and I probably won't hear from him again for a few days. He did say the truck ended up on its side before our connection faded.

Thanks for the input on the stamps, I guess I'm ignorant but what would the Union Atlantic RR have to do with steel garden tractor rims?
This Panzer does seem to be one of the last ones before the squared off design and these rear wheels are more like my Cub rims (not flat centered like the other Panzers I've seen) but they do have a factory hole for the hub line-up pin. Guess they could be from M-Wards supplier?

These were stamped on the wheel, not the rearend?
I'm not sure about the first stamp but the MW is for Motor Wheel Corporation, the company that made the wheel. Nothing to do with Montgomery Wards.
The rear axle in the Panzers is a Chrysler car rear. Motor Wheel was the supplier to Chrysler and most of the other auto manufacturers of the era.

Not correct. The first one was to pay homage to satan and the second was to predict the end of days.

Now that I think about it, maybe your way is right after all.
