They seem to be much more rare than any of the Panzer models.  I've only ever seen one of those for sale around this area and I have no idea what it brought but it did sell.

 

Just to tease, I'm pretty sure this was the one that was for sale and it was in 2012.

Good luck with the search.

Chris11 please forgive for taking your thread too far off topic. :D

 

what is the one next to it? 

 

That is a Work Bird.  I don't really know much about them but I think there may be a thread or two on the forum where they've come up.

Don't worry, I love all of this, Thanks for the picture of the 88.I saw one on CL in NH and I never called. I love the Panzers. And the storys that go with them. Think of the work they had to do to build them. They had to go to junk yards and pick up all those rear axles, and then drain oil out cut and weld everything back together. And I was told they Built just under 50,000 units I have a 1011 and a t75es and some spare parts.

Hi guys,

 

I have two Penn 88's. They are not for sale though. I bought them in July and August of 2012. I have never seen another one before or since. Just pure dumb luck that I was able to buy both of them within that short of a time span. I have a link to both with the stories of each. It is under "Penn 88 information." Here is the webpage. Just copy and paste.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

There isn't a lot of information on these available. At least that I've been able to find.

Must have missed this thread the first time but sure glad I didn't miss it again . Are those Penn 88s the only rear engine Panzers ?

I believe they are the only rear engine Panzer.

I know where there is one and I think it is for sale.  It is all there BUT I think it is probably a parts machine.  It is here in Western Mass.  I will probably see the guy this weekend.  If interested let me know.
