I don't know the model but the cast grill just has Pennsylvania in the front.
Restoring for my grandson and need some info
1. Paint codes for the main color and what white
2. Where can I find parts such as wheel bearing and seals
3. What does the proper gas tank look like - maybe a drawing so that I can make one

Thanks
Bmack

Welcome to the forum. Those Panzers are a really nice tractor. I would love to have one some day. That will make a nice project for you and your grandson to enjoy.

Yep, post a pic. Check out Dandy Sales and www.panzertractors.com for model ID. Probably a t7xxx of some type. There's guys here and on a panzer yahoo forum who will help with whatever.

Here is a link to my restoration work on the Panzers, Garden Tractor Talk - Two Pennsylvania Panzers Restored and Finished

If you still need photos of the gas tank, I have one in pieces that I need to get back to and could get you the photos and dimesions. They are fun tractors to drive aned I wish you the best at getting it done for your grandson.

Petenpole, thanks for the link. I love how those look from the rear with the fenders. Really cool tractors.

I will help anyone who lives near my old stomping grounds. Yes I too was a T Town resident 78-83. Worked close to 23rd and Sheridan and lived in SE Tulsa as well.

Pete, did you replace or restore the spring behind the seat on your Panzers? I've had an eye out for a spring that's exactly like that. I've got the old rusty one which I don't think could ever be restored to look good. Is there a good way to restore a spring? So much of the metal surface is between the springs or inside the tube.

All I did was sand blast each spring down.

I am pretty sure you could take a garage door spring (heavy one) to a automobile or truck spring shop and have it cut and the ends turned to make the hooks
