Panzer 1957 T102 Restoration in progress. Complete engine rebuild. Engine is not the correct year. It is a 1970 model 2434 10 hp. Rear rims and tires are on it temporary till I get the original ones repaired. About $300.00 in materials so far. $150 of which was in the motor. Still need to buy the rear tires( about $250) I will post more when its complete.
Spring startup of the Panzer
Figured I'd finish up the startups for this year. Here is my 1963 Panzer
T70ES Tractor I restored in 2007. It has come a long way as you can see in
the vid, but isn't quite done completely. I still have the carb linkages to
finalize, now that I found the original parts, it'll go together. Was hard
starting though, not common for a Briggs.

This 1950's David Bradley Tri-Trac tractor was seen at the Arizona Early

Restoring a Ferguson TO-30 Tractor in 8 minutes or less
Restoring a 1952 Ferguson TO-30 Tractor. This tractor is family owned since
new from when my grandfather had a Ferguson dealership in McMinnville
Oregon. Rebuild took 2 years and thousands of dollars, not a project for
the faint of heart. Engine is a Continental Z-129. The block had cracked
and had already been welded when I got it. I had the pistons and sleeves
replaced and the crankshaft ground. All new electical and lots of time
cleaning and painting. She is a beauty!

Labour Day 2013 for Restoring the Deutz Third Reich Tractor Doku
Engine and transmission is still in good condition and don´t need to be
fixed. I´m just cleaning the housing and grinding the rust. In the final,
the tractor won´t get painted. Old looking with thin rust, but shielded by
The tractor was used for forest-work since from 1936 to the 1970s. During
the time it was always fixed and some parts were changed, such as bigger
rear wheels, better steering gear, more powerful generator and automatic
coupling for trailer.
This all is noted and stamped in the original documents.
Fast Garden Tractor
My Pennsylvania Panzer with a 1972 750cc Honda SOHC. Rebuilt frame,
(lengthened) installed Volvo 4 speed etc. Lots of work, but the tractor
would go about 100mph. This video is poor because it was taken from a TV of
a VHS tape, and it's about 15 years old.
1957 Copar Panzer model T205 with Power king economy tractor fenders and
sleeve hitch adapter.
John Deere model 4230 Tractor Restoration
I completed the restoration on our 1977 John Deere 4230 tractor. The
tractor is original to the farm, purchased new from Sichi Farm Supply. It
currently has just over 3,200 original hours. No major engine or mechanical
work done. Just needed a re-paint, and some cosmetic repairs. Since these
pictures were taken, I have also completely rebuilt the dashboard and gauge
clusters, installed a new steering wheel, and rebuilt the steering valves.
This is by no means a "museum quality" restoration, more of a "working"
restoration. I use the tractor throught the summer season, primarily for
hauling round bales and raking hay with our Kuhn 7822 dual-rotor rake.
I would like to thank Joe Sustrik (owner) for allowing me the chance to
complete the restoration, my grandfather Jim, and my friends Matt and Jeff
for helping me complete this project. Enjoy!

Tractor Trials archive video from the 1930s - old film of working machines
"1930s Tractor Trials" DVD introduction from Primetime Video.
The World Agricultural Tractor Trials of 1930 were a major event in the
history of farm tractors in Britain. 36 tractors, from seven different
countries, ranging from massive crawlers to three motor cultivators for
market gardeners, were brought to one site in Oxfordshire.
Among the machines to be seen are five of the earliest Caterpillar models,
a four-wheel drive French Latil, three Peter Brotherhood tractors, a
Vickers Aussie, two Swedish Munktells, a Linke crawler from Gernany and
what is probably the only Hungarian-British HCSC in the world, as well as
machines from Case, Massey Harris, Marshall and one of the few failures of
the trials, the Fordson Model N, which went on to be one of the world's
most successful tractors.

1963 Panzer Tractor T70B
My 1963 Panzer tractor model T70B restoration. Used a 8 hp Kohler engine.
Used Pontiac Blue engine spray paint. Close to original color, not exact
but close. Need to install a new PTO bracket on the left side yet and I
have the mower deck to restore also. Runs well. A lot smaller then my big
red Panzers, but still a neat piece of history. Check out my other video of
this tractor as it looked before the restore.
