Nice find.

Looking forward to seeing you progress on this project.

I wish I had that one.

Also, were fenders an option on the T55 and earlier models? How can I tell if it ever had fenders?

It does not appear that there have ever been fenders on it. There is a piece of metal welded into the lift control, I thought nothing of it until I set the plate on were is would go and noticed that it was put there to keep the front lift from hitting the plate. When did they change the lift control? Also, T60 picture form the link on the first page doesn't look like it has the notch in the hood above the engine. And the grill mount for the T60 sits higher than the T55, mine sits lower and has the notch in the hood.

I personally don't know much about the subtle differences of the early T-series other than what is posted on the panzertractors website. If no one here is able to help, I highly recommend calling Jim Haynes at Dandysales.com. If you're not familiar, he reproduces and sells Panzer parts and actually owns the "Panzer" brand. He'll be able to ID it.

Today, I got a pulley for the little briggs 3hp that I put on it. I adjusted the engine and tightened it down. I finished modifying a pair of rims to put on the back so I could drive it. I started it and drove it over to my brothers truck where I put air in the tires and drove it around some more. Is there some sort of set collar that goes behind the column support to keep it in place?

Nice project.  I believe that the rear support of the steering column was fastened to the hood.

So find a hood and you have your support.

Wowza!!!  I have been looking for one of these for a few years!!

 

I know this is an older thread but I have an ID on it.  The tractor is a T55, the grill should be completely aluminum, the steering shaft should come out above the left tire.  This model was build between late 58 59 and 60. 

 

Any updates on the restoration??

I pulled the rear axles and differential, found some shavings in the oil. I got the old front tires off the rims, they were in bad shape and hard to get loose. I started cleaning the front axle and bull gear. Finally got the shifter off. I started priming the hood, grill, and rear sheet metal. Going to start on the seat and other small parts soon. I plan to find a suitable two stroke engine to put in it, an old chainsaw, or my brother has a small snow blower that is. And I plan on putting bigger tires on it.

I just wanted to post a picture of what the new tires and painted rims look like for my brother's Panzer. Hopefully this post will make him want to start working on it again too lol.
