Today at work a men shows up with a trailer and has a Panzer on it, saying how he remembered me saying I was interested in one. Say's it's for sale, doesn't run, has the original plow and tires hold air.

 

Obviously not the original engine, but it's free and turns. 

 

What do you think it's value is? I normally don't ask that, but want to see if I got burned or got a fair deal.

I'm no true help, as I know little about them.  What I do know is they sell high.  I may sound ignorant for saying this, but $300 would be fair to a good deal around here.

I got to run my first Panzer a few weeks ago while running some parts to a Panzer collector.  They are quite the tractor!

 

Likes like a good steal no matter what you paid for it.

 

The Panzer collector I was talking with only has one plow out of a herd of 20 some Panzers.  He said they are hard to find.  I don't know if the plows are rare for your model or not, but I wouldn't shake a fist at the price you paid until you know for certain.

Peter, I found this at Panzer Tractor Owners Club, I would say it's a T 203..  T205

T100 and T200 Series Copar Panzers
The T100 series was the evolution of the Model A. The T102 was produced starting in about 1957 at the Laurel, Md. plant. The 100 series has a single front wheel and is larger than the T50 format. In 1957, a wide front end kit was sold for the T102, which then became the T200 series. This lasted until about 1960 when Virginia Metalcrafters bought CoPar and discontinued the line (see notes on the T220). The wide front end was initially sold as a kit that adapted to existing 3 wheelers. Later T200 series tractors had improved front end geometry / design.

 

 

 

Very nice find and I think you got a great deal.

Peter, I was wrong in the post above. I haven't figured out how to save it when it's blown up, but your ID tag appears to say T205. there is it looks like a crease on the top of the 5.

I'd say $300 is a good deal.

There was a T205 but that is definitely not one. The T200 series was the earlier, larger 4 wheel tractor line.

What you have is a T70B with a misprint on the tag. Panzertractors.com is a good source of info and there are a lot of downloads available on the Panzer yahoo group.

Most definitely a T70B.

 

Still a great tractor! Can't wait to get back into mine. LOL.

Big Panzer three wheelers started with the model A then became the T100 series. Big four wheelers were the T200 series. The small Panzers started with the T50 and progressed every five through the T75. Then the body and number system changed.
T50 - T65 grills say "Copar Panzer." T70s just say "Panzer" as the ownership changed. T75s say "Pennsylvania Panzer."

I think Brian may have it right.  What looks like the top half of a 3 may actually be where it got whacked.  That part is way deeper than the rest, and the shape of a 5 is under all that for sure.

It's a T70B. I considered that someone might have put an older T205 serial tag on it but the tag is from Panzer Products (Virginia Metalcrafters). T205s were out of production long before Metalcrafters bought them. The 2 is a misprint.
