I have restored many tractors, mostly IH Cub's, many Sears, a couple JD's, and a Springfield 36 that is still in the works.  However, I have waited for years to get my hands on a Panzer.  I finally did a year or so ago and haven't touched it.  Work always gets in the way and when you own the company.......spare time is even less.  Anyway, I finally have made time.  The project has begun!!  I have read and researched many forums, articles, etc etc.  I am still unsure of the date of this Panzer.  In one pic you will see me pointing to a certain area.  They claim this is where the serial # should be and the later models said "serial" but no #.  Mine has neither.  I am including pics of every I.D. or number I could find.  The sides of both frame rails reads "Jones & Laughlin 5", I'm guessing this could be the dealer it was sold at??  Either way- from what I can find is it's either a Model A, (which I'm guessing not because I've read those were all red), or a 102 because those had yellow accents.  Any help or info would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Were you able to find manuals for it?  Such as the operators manual, owners manual?  Where was your serial/model number located?

Jones & Laughlin were (are?) a steel manufacturing or fabricating company. My mom worked for them for a few years back in the late 1970's or early 80's here in Lancaster, PA.  The name was probably rolled on the pipe at the steel plant where it (pipe) was made.

Welcome to GTT. Nice project!  We have manuals for Panzers in our Manuals Section. You are allowed 3 free downloads per day. If you become a supporter there is no limit. In the crazy world of running a business, look at working on the tractor as a sanity pause that will lower your stress level.

 

You can search our threads in the Panzer section to learn more about what our members are doing with theirs. Good Luck, Rick

Thank you!! That is pretty neat to know.  It's funny that with a small amount of light sandpaper use, I was able to read all of that writing.

I restored it for a friend of mine. I'll ask him.

I wonder if there's a way to tell what years the frames were made there....
