Picked this panzer up the other day. Has no seriel number or I'd tag that I can find. ANY help identifying this would be greatly appreciated. Did not come with original motor what exact model motor would I want to restore this back to original? Once had a key, electric start maybe? Thanks

I think what you have is a Pennsylvania Panzer T758es. The motor should be an 8hp Kohler.

My T75, [unmolested - know its complete history] has a key switch even though it was a factory rope start only. So I'd say the key switch doesn't mean it was electric start.

Engine for rope start T75 would be an 8 horse Briggs aluminum block with a ball bearing on the PTO side of the block, and a Flo-Jet carb.

Serial tag should be on the dash but they were just a decal so likely long gone.

Great machine! :thumbs:

I think it is a 1966 and it should have a seven HP Briggs looks just like mine if it wasn't electric start it would have a small round cover where the switch would go.

I have a jd 110 with a 8hp kohler would this be a good motor for this lower I'm looking to match close to original? Also I've seen pictures of these with headlights were they an option on the panzer or just added by people?
The headlight kit was a factory option (model number TA24) and was available for a suggested retail price of $19.50 (1964/65 price). The correct headlights will have a single, turn type switch mounted to the right side headlight that controls both lights. Lights for the T-70, 707es style tractors usually came in black to match the steering wheel. Lights for the T-75, 758es and Meteor types were usually white. The lights on the 707es pictured here are the correct type, although re Wheel Tire Vehicle Motor vehicle Automotive tire
painted to match the tractor.

Thank you for the response! Much help, now can anyone tell me if the kohler 181 of the jd 110 would be a good match for an engine to this mower? I got this panzer with a hm100 techumseh and I know it's not original
I don't see any reason why the 181 off a JD 110 wouldn't work as long as the crankshaft ends are the same as one that would be meant for a Panzer in the first place.
