I soon after restored it, but never did restore the mowing deck. I have mowed some with it, but mostly just take it to local shows now. Here are some "during restore" pics
Here it as at local show in 2006. My youngest daughter has sure grown since this pic!

The whole tractor was torn down for repainting. Luck for me it was mainly surface rust and the metal wasn't really pitted much at all. I sanded a lot and gave it a couple of coats of primer. The tractor was in very good mechanical condition and other than some carb work nothing needed to be done other than the repainting and new tires for the restoration.
A friend of mine who paints tractors shot the " tantilizing torquise" paint on it for me and I reassembled the tractor and gave it to my wife.
We take our "his and hers" panzers to tractor shows and have had a lot of fun with them. Their color along with their construction using a Plymouth car rear end have started a lot of conversations.
