Hey - I posted a link to that on- E-Bay C/L forum here . If I was closer to it you would have had to bid against me for it . I love that model - and would have liked to restore that one. Great find and Glad you got it.

I keep saying I can't get any more - but I am always looking around for that great deal or something special .

 

You can't stop now....this is just getting interesting...my wife is on to me to buy something vintage,,,,she has not seen the Panzers but when she does my right ear going to get a workout.

 

I know absolutely nothing about these tractors but I've always liked them and would look them over whenever I saw one at a show.

I have never seen a Panzer for sale before but I had also never actively looked for one for sale.

This one being for sale in Illinois got me excited right away.   I'm very happy that I was able to purchase it.

I don't know a lot about them either , I do the same thing at shows though . I always have to look twice at the Panzers . That is a great looking tractor - has a lot of 'tractor' style . I hope you get that thing fixed up good . It will be a beauty and worth the effort I am sure!

I am jealous - I really want one of those.

Thank you everyone  for all the comments.


Thanks to my trusty forklift, unloading the tractor was much easier than loading it.
I had built a platform that fits on the forks so I can use it for working up on the side of the building.
This worked fine for rolling the tractor back onto it.

I fastened both ends so the tractor wouldn't roll off and set the platform down at the entrance to the garage.

It was then easy to roll the tractor off and into the garage.

For now it is setting in the back corner of the garage and will have to stay there until I get my workshop set back up.

Neat tractor. If the past is any indication it will be running like a watch before long. 

How's the Cummins Treating you? Now that you have had some time to run it are you still happy with the conversion?

I have put a little over 11,000 miles on the truck since the Cummins conversion and I'm really pleased with it.

The truck is getting 20 MPG driving around town.

Nice Panzer, wouldn't mind having one for the collection. The big drive pulley just fascinates me.

We have had any number of folks making grandiose claims to this effect. I think it would be better to wait until you have actually done so. Then you can share with us how you made this change. Jus' sayin'!

So ... I have to ask. 

You all saw the big headline that I'm not going to buy any more tractors.

How many of you saw the disclaimer in the small red lettering at the top of the first page ?

Well no, not really.
