Hi guys,



I picked up another Panzer yesterday. The tag is pretty beat up, but I think it says it's a model 1110. The serial number is easily read and is 92220. This thing is ROUGH! I couldn't take very good pictures due to the rain and it being dark. I will post better ones soon. The seat, hood, engine and who knows what else is missing. Everything that is there seems to be rusted tight. I paid $30.00 for it! Yup, $30.00 whole dollars. I got to talking to the guy and he turned out to be a distant cousin. He bought it years ago for scrap, so that's what he sold it for. What a pal! He said, "From my junk pile, to yours." Ha! Well, he wasn't kidding, the front rims are rusted through, all of the tires are dry rotted and the steering shaft is rusted tight. The rear wheels had some sort of a homemade dual wheel set up at one time. There is all-thread through the stud holes and a ring welded to the edge of the rims. The gas tank is rusted and full of debris from the tree it was under. The one thing I found interesting is there was a three point assembly on the rear and an electric/hydraulic pump mounted on the right fender. It's also junk, but I was wondering if it was a factory accessory, or a homemade "add-on." I will post pictures soon. I do not think this is a candidate for restoration, but I haven't seen any square body Panzers around here. So this one may be my conversation piece. I look forward to your comments!

That's still a good deal for $30!!!! We can probably help more with the 3 point and pump when you post pics. I think they are most likely add-on's as I don't think Panzer made anything like that. I could be wrong though. Good score :thumbs:  We'll be waiting for the pics!!!!!!

Sounds like a pretty decent deal to me.  You've got a good friend: I'm glad he saved it from the scrapyard back then!

 

What engine do you need to make it run?

That's yard art if nothing else! Make that thing a planter after parting out those rear tires if their still good.

Everything on this thing is rusted TIGHT! I can't even move the jackshaft. The tires are junk, the engine is missing and I don't think there is much that is salvagable. Oh well. I've spent more on less. This should be the cheapest Panzer at my estate sale some day. I feel bad for the poor sap that has to make those arrangements! Lol. Does anyone have any information on the pump or three point that is mounted on this thing? It looks VERY homemade.

I have a friend who says his goal in life is to have the world's biggest estate sale. :D
As far as the hitch, I agree, very home made except for the brackets coming off the rear.

Late to the game... as usual.  But I'd have to think that this was rigged to perhaps spray fertilizer or spread salt or something to that effect.  The 1110 was one of the last models made and this one is rusted out much more that even some of the older ones that had been left out in the elements.  So I'm thinking it had to have been exposed to some corrosive stuff along the way.  Good luck!
