I just acquired my first Panzer. It's a T758ES and it seems to be very original and complete other than the steering wheel and seat. Being new to Panzers, I have a few questions I hope someone could help me with. Where will I find the serial number ? I've seen photos that show a number on the frame rails but I can't make out exactly where. Also, would the original steering wheel have been one of the crescent shaped ones? I read on one of the threads where someone mentioned that steering wheels are still available. If true, where?  Would the original seat have been a steel implement  pan type?  Lastly, what battery group type should I use.

  This forum has been extremely informative and helpful. Thank you in advance.

Nice find post some pictures,
the serial number is on the sticker on the dash under the steering wheel, most of the time they are long gone.
the 75 has the Cresent wheel, it's made by sheller, it's a common to find ebay or other tractors,
2 seat options, regular metal seat or the deluxe seat.

here is the link to one of my t75, there are pics of the steering wheel and deluxe seat

Thanks to all for replying. The machine was painted over the original paint with red at some point in time but the sticker is there under the paint! I was able to read the model number-T758ES and  a serial number that begins with 84. A little better light tomorrow and I think i'll be able to see the rest of it.  Only have two bad  pics right now. I'll try to take some good ones soon and post them. Here's what I have for now.

I'ld prefer that steering wheel and seat with pad like that, over any crescent or metal seat if mine. I like these red ones much better, seem to be more updated too. Maybe that is why yours seems diff, just better updated model??  I like Improvements, not going backwards to items that work, but not as easy or nice. The H... with original, but that's just me.

looks like a good solid machine to restore. I have redone a few, if you need any help along the way feel free to contact me.

Looks like you've got a very good starting point for a restoration (no beat up sheet metal)  AND it came with the mower deck, which are getting hard to find. As far as the battery, I'm not sure that garden tractor batteries come in "group" sizes but it's just a standard size garden tractor battery readily available at Sears or most big box stores. That will mount under the seat (right side) on that flat plate with the terminals positioned toward the right side fender and you'll want to make sure you get a battery that will have the negative terminal toward the back.
