I have wanted one of these tractors ever since I saw a picture of one online, so finally I have one:D

I managed to find a person who imported tractors for a living, about a year ago I asked him if he could find me a panzer. A couple of months ago he did and a deal was done, it took five weeks to cross the Atlantic Ocean from the tractor originally being sold in Illinois.
On Saturday me and Dad drove up to shropshire to collect it from his Farm. I must say I am very pleased with it. Here are some pictures.8EDAEAE1-273E-4A55-BCDA-27F94310BA47.jpeg 734D5DE6-BB0C-4545-83FB-E1998874A78F.jpeg 9FB15FC9-335A-434B-AC5B-B68C24A6D040.jpeg

As you can see it has had some painted applied in an odd fashion, and I knew the original paint was underneath. So a few hours of light sanding etc I managed to get the end result with a light coat of oil to make it shine.

Congratulation on a nice looking tractor!  I like what you have done with removing the paint and hope you keep it that way!

Tell us how much you paid to have it shipped! I would like to have a motorcycle shipped from Europe.
