 the foot release control pedal for engine belt tensioner 

I think that might have been an option on some models.  Not sure.  Still a nice looking machine

Color looks good on it.  I think that the electric start  Panzers had a Kohler, and the pull or rope start  had a Briggs

I think above is correct. I have a electric start Kohler 8 H.P. and it is the correct motor for that tractor.

It's a nice panzer but it wasn't taken apart for the painting , all the bolts are painted over and lug nuts were painted over. Still looks nice but that is a high price for a face lift. A good tractor for a lower price

The early T70's ran Briggs and some early T75's did as well. The majority were pull start. There were 98 or 99 electric start Briggs T70's built in 1960. I have one of them. My tractor serial # is 0037. All T70's and T75's thereafter were Kohler.

I have to disagree. I think the bolt color was intentional during restoration. The paint looks too nice to be a rattle-can job. It doesn't look like the paint was haphazardly applied. The dust covers on the front wheels were painted teal (on purpose although not correct) showing some attention to detail, and the raised lettering on the drive arm was hand painted too. That wasn't a quickie hacker face lift. It looks like a nice resto actually.

The owner of that tractor aproached me at a show in September looking to see if I was interested. He didn't have the tractor along so I never got to see it. I did get the whole story on it but wasn't totally paying attention after he said $1000.

If I remember correctly, he's a Wheel Horse guy but re-did this tractor, for his wife maybe? He claimed to have $2000 into it. I know he said it was automotive paint, not a rattle can. I think he was selling because the wife didn't care for it when he finished and he said it was too much of a PIA to operate and start (no electric start on the Briggs T75.) I got the impression he REALLY didn't like the tractor. Of course he claimed the whole tractor was taken apart and anything worn was replaced with correct parts.

A nice T75 is on my wishlist but a $1000 bill is not. Who knows, maybe he does have that kind of money into it? I could easily see having a restoration add up to $1000 but it's a big chunk to drop for someone else's work which might not live up to your own standards.

I think it's a nice restore but not worth that kind of money. I say it was not taken apart because the motor mount bushings are painted and rear lug nuts and some other things .The front axel caps should be painted if not aluminum . I have the t70 in my profile pic that I painted together and it looks great and it's not the right color either but also worth less because of that.
Thanks
Tom

I agree $1000 for a T75 might be a little heavy, but if in fact the resto is nice in person, its VERY concievable he has way more than that into it. I'm three years into my Bantam 8000 restore. Every nut and bolt has been reworked, rebuilt or replaced in stainless if not NOS. The paint is PPG Hugger orange with urethane clear, wet sanded and buffed between coats. The trans shifts better than new. With everything done so far and just buying the parts to rebuild the engine (which isnt done yet) I'm into this for $3200-3300 so far.

Now that's a nut and bolt restore. Incredible job
