Well, I just got home from visiting the Panzer. No pictures, though, since it was a spur of the moment "anyone home" visit. Sorry!
The engine is complete but frozen. I hope it is only a valve, but it doesn't have any gear lash (not a good sign for the cylinder). The tires are sad: on the side you can't see, one front is rotted almost completely, and the rear is flat. The other side (that you can see) seems to have decent tires.
I talked to the owner's son. He said it had been in the family since it was new. However, the bad news is that the owner's son said his Dad is ready to sell, but he wants $700 for it. It would take some work: it's worth something, but not $700!!! He thinks there is a sickle mower for it, and a cultivator or plow.
Unless a good GTTalk man wants to put up $700 and come get it, I think I will wait a little while. The owner's son told me he was sympathetic to the cause, and would like to see it go to a good home. He thinks his Dad's price might go down by June.
However, on another note, he pointed out another Panzer under a tarp. He said it ran, it was the other Panzer's brother. I saw hubcaps on the rear, and the same front axle as the first Panzer. Sounds like it is time for a double rescue, but there is no price on that one. $700 for a non running Panzer would probably even out to like $2000 for a running one!
