I see a huge amount of GT's in here & started thinking which 1 i would like the best if i wanted to or had the opportunity too own 1 of sorts 

 

So what is your preference to a wish Tractor ??

 

So in my opinion the Panzer T70 has caught my eye the most ,just my style of tractor in preference tidy & compact 

 

there is others as well ! , but this type     Panzer tractor.jpg

 

 

 I am sorry for this pic but did not want to steal some 1 elses named pic to display as im told i should not do so

 

so this 1 is the only 1 i could find on the net unnamed to any 1 else 

 

but there was a lot of GTtalk photo's there

Are there even any Panzers in Australia? How are you planning to use the GT?  Try taking some pics of the GTs that are popular in your area and posting them on here. The most common GTs from the 60s and 70s seem to be Allis Chalmers, Bolens, Cub Cadet, John Deere, Sears, Simplicity, and Wheelhorse.  I would imagine that shipping one from the US would be cost prohibitive. Keep your eyes open and you will probably be suprised with something real cool in your area. Good Luck, Rick

Rick , i have only saw Howard & kubota & Rover here in Queensland  but down in Victoria there are lots more in variety i am told & going by ebay as well , but gravely is around in small doses in walk behind types , i did pick up a gravely fuel tank which had a belt drive fan under it  on kerbside in june 

 

i initially want it for pulling loads & front blading most and plowing later on when i get myself sorted better , but i do want to make some attachments as well

You should find something you like and go from there. Most gt's from the 60's and 70's will do pretty much everything.

My favorites are the super garden tractors like my PowerMax and the 1855 MF I use to own, as well as the Ultima's and their different labeled siblings.

Would think Ford would be brand to find there, No? Buy brands from there or near, just to be able to have parts.
