I got some more pictures of it today. The engine is massive compared to the rest of the tractor lol. The original dealer tag is still on the tractor too. I think that it has never left the local area since it was new.

What is the ser. number? I would love to make a list of who owns what numbers. But Big Als got me so busy doing projects. Are you going to find the right engine for it?

The serial number is 80365. I'm not sure what I'll do about the engine yet. I may find an original engine but I'm not even sure what the correct engine is.

I have an original motor for your T70. It still has the 3 groove pulley installed on it, but the reverse disc is shot. It needs a set of points, but has a new plug and recoil rope installed.

I will keep you in mind when I get around to working on this tractor. Right now I'm broke or else I'd be interested in buying your engine.

That is very cool. so it did have a briggs on it. From my understanding They used the red decals plated later. The only thing I don't understand, why my newer 1011 have the old style white tag. I think it would be cool to see how many sel numbers we can come up with. I think Big Al should be in charger of doing that? I love the dealer decal. Im have some made for mine.

From what I remember hearing, the different style tags don't have all that much to do with what year or model the tractor was. They just used what they had available. This is why you'll sometimes see the white ones on the same model that used the red foil type. I've seen both red and white tags on T-70s.

   Me? - Be in charge of keeping track of serial numbers? Yeah right! Just what I need - another project to work on :wallbanging:

I don't remember seeing any pictures of the factory, at least nothing that showed any kind of assembly line work. That doesn't mean they aren't out there. I just don't remember seeing them myself. I'll have to ask Jim Haynes about that the next time we sit down to dinner together.
I did get to meet Austin Kennell, president of the Panzer company. It was back in Oct of 1998 when I was on the Board of Directors for the Panzer Tractors Owners Club. At the conclusion of our annual Panzer Party in College Park, MD, a group of us held our BoD meeting at Austin's house in Waynesboro, VA. This included Mike and Sue Heller, Jim and Ellen Haynes and my wife Loreen and I. We had planned to have a barbeque when we got there and as luck would have it, the weather was perfect for it. By this time, Austin had been retired for a while and was getting up there in years but was still able to get around and was sharp as a tack. I wish I had a camcorder back then because he sure wasn't shy when it came to talking about the company and the little tractors they built. What impressed me about Austin is that he never came across as somebody who thought he was special. I felt completely at ease around him, right from the start. He wanted us to feel as if his house was our own and insisted we return soon for another visit and you could feel that he really meant it.
One of the highlights of the visit for me was being able to see Dandy Sales and get to buy parts directly over the counter. Talk about kids in a candy store. At this time, Austin's daughter had taken over Dandy but it was still on his property in a building seperate from the main house. This is the same company that is now owned by Jim and Ellen Haynes of Monson, MA. Thanks to them,the Kennell legacy lives on.
