Spirit of ’76: 1976 Steiger Panther II

Jul 08, 2011

This tractor is featured for the month of July in the Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.

Its distinctive red, white and blue color scheme denotes it as a Bicentennial model; nobody seems to know the exact number of Steiger with these patriotic marking. (the best guess is less than 20). This Steiger was built in Fargo, N.D., but the paint job was done in a body shop that added $1,200 to the total cost. Steiger is an inspirational, American entrepreneurial story of brothers Doug and Maurice Steiger, Red Lake Falls, Minnesota, who began building 4WD articulated tractor in the 1950s. This one was powered by a Cummins 310-hp engine. Other Steigers were fitted with Detroit Diesels or Cat Diesels. Many of those were lime-colored, bearing names such as Bearcat, Cougar, Panther, Tiger and Wildcat.
