Here is a Copar Panzer which I believe is a T60. Can't see enough to be sure of the year.

I don't know too much about the Panzer's. How many makes and models did they make? Why were some of them Red and others the Robin egg blue?

I am not exactly sure how many different models they made but I think it's between 20 and 30.

Copar panzers were all painted red except the T65. when copar sold to Virginia metal crafters the name on the grill Changed and they switched the color to turquoise blue.

I drive by one every day going to work and haven't stopped to see if he'd part with it, I think the woman might kill me if I bring another one home. I might just have to move a couple before I try.  It's been setting in the nose of a trailer with all kinds of junk thrown behind it for some time " like 3 years" that I know of. I knew it was there but wasn't sure of the brand until I joined this site. It's kind of funny now I drive around looking in everyone's yard looking for old gt's. Thanks for the education on the Panzers.

The trick to is to collect either the early models Copar Panzers or the T65 model and up. All Copar Panzers are red or All T65 and Panzers and newer. That way they are either all red or all blue them the wife has a hard time picking out a new addition to the herd. Except my wife and she just ask "where you going to put it". I'll be traveling N.E. when the snow and junk clears out this spring for a couple more.

Good question! I had to think about that one and do some homework.
Big 3 wheelers: Model A / T102 / T110 / T115 / T120
Big 4 wheelers: T205 / T210 / T215 / T220
Round body small tractors: T50 / T55 / T60 / T65 / T70 / T75
Square body small tractors: 1008 / 1010 / 1012 / 1107 / 1110

Plus some sub-models representing different engines, electric start, loader tractors, etc.

What horse power engines did they run, is that figured into the number listed? I know the Fords are listed as such LGT 165 = 16 horse. Sorry about all the questions, I am just trying to learn about them because they are cool little gt's and someday I hope to add one to my collection.  " That is if you guy's don't buy them all up before I can find one of the two you haven't sniffed out yet"                    :bigrofl:  :bigrofl:  :bigrofl:  :bigrofl:  Thanks again Todd.

They used a bunch of different horsepower engines and a bunch of different brands for that matter. Briggs, Kohler, Clinton, and Tecumseh. The T100s and T200s used the 9hp Briggs 23A. The small round body models used 4hp through 8hp engines. The square bodied models use 7hp through 12hp engines with the last two digits of the model representing hp.

The one I'm eyeing, Is red so that would make it an early Copar or a T 65 - T75. From what I can see from the road I'd have to guess it's a small body. I have never seen a Panzer in person so I have nothing to compare with. Any pic's of the difference between the two? I have checked the gallery but not much help.
