General junkin' day with not much special. Some old cast iron, couple of Mack truck bulldogs, small odds and end stuff and then I received a email from a guy I know. Tractor is for sale now and the price. he lives about 20 miles from me so you figure the rest of the story. Turned into a good day quick. He had made a hitch for it, it worked good but not quite what I want. Good thing is he made it to bolt on with no welding onto the tractor.

 

This is the tractor that gave me the itch for Copar Panzers when I first saw it.

It's not restored but is all there and runs perfect. He painted it will rattle cans but it looks good. It will be stripped sooner or later and repainted.

Spray bomb comes off easy. Factory paint or RC primer under that?

That's a very nice find! Thanks for sharing the photos! Do you know the serial number? It should be stamped on the right frame rail just about where your pulley setup is mounted.

I haven't got to look today. It was late when I got home and I bought it quick as his wife didn't want him to sell it. He said it was a 1957 according to Jim Haynes. He had ordered some parts from Jim for it.
