Hi guys,

I went picked up a 1964 T758ES yesterday morning. My girlfriend went along with me to get this one. She helped throw parts in the trunk. Yes trunk. I pull the small trailer in the pictures behind my 96 Saturn SL1. Lol. It doesn't like it much, but it got 26 MPG loaded. It seems kind of sillly to take the truck anywhere anymore. This was a 4 hour round trip.

I picked this one up in Missouri. The gentleman that I bought it from said it was his dads and his dad quit using in many many years ago and has since passed away. He said that he had plans to restore it but as time progresses he realizes that that's just not going to happen. He said that he was more than happy to send it along with somebody that may get more use out of it than he will.

He had a bunch of extra parts to go along with it. He had an extra set of fenders an extra jack shaft drive pulley, an original back rest for the seat which is in really good shape. He said he had a guy offer him his asking price just for the back rest. He said he would not part it out. For what I paid for it, I would have sent that back rest down the road! He had an extra generator but its locked up. The mower deck seems to be complete although it's pretty much toast from sitting on the ground for nearly 20 years. He had the front push blade but not the mounting bracket. There was an extra gas tank but its rusted all the heck. There is a complete front end and hood steering wheel and steering shaft assembly.

He said it hasn't been ran since 07-08. The engine is not locked up thank goodness. Rear tires are fair as usual and the rims are in great shape. He had it parked under a semi-trailer which shielded it from the elements over the years.

Here are pictures he sent me as it sat for years.

Here are some pictures. As always, comments are welcome!

As of right now none of the parts are for sale. I would trade for dual wheel hub adapters though.

I am loading these pictures from a Tablet. My laptop is junk. It's gonna take some getting used to and it does not have all the features the laptop did. It won't let me preview the post or add pictures within the body of the text. I had to load all the pictures in a row.

Nice collection of Panzers. Are you using the GTTalk mobile theme? I have never used it but I wonder if that is why you can't access some functions on the tablet. To change themes click on "Change Theme" at the bottom of the page.

Yep - a nice bunch of goodies. Reminds me of the story that goes along with my T-758 puller (see gallery). The guy I bought it from said it belonged to his father and had been sitting outside under a tattered tarp for about ten years. Pretty much a basket case but came with the snow thrower, dozer blade and spare parts. After I restored it back to original condition, I showed it to the guy I bought from so he could see what is dad's tractor would have looked like when new. Shortly after that, I started modifying it a bit to give it more of a nostalgic hot-rod look. It originally came with the grill that only said Pennsylvania cast across the top of the grill. I changed to the one that has Pennsylvania Panzer cast into it because I thought it looked more ballanced.

  From what I can see, the one you just aquired would be a good candidate for a nice restoration. Good luck with it. :thumbs:
