1972 DeTomaso Pantera
Ford 351 CID/5.7L 330 HP V8 Engine
5-Speed ZF Manual Transaxle
The 1972 DeTomaso Pantera offered here is a true sports car classic. Its yellow knife edge exterior styling as well as its mid-engine design remain contemporary today while its 351 cu in Cleveland Ford V8 engine coupled to its gated shifter 5 speed transaxle allow it to perform competitively with today’s sports cars. Rising yet still reasonable values combined with a healthy percentage of regularly driven Panteras presents a best of both worlds situation. Collectors can rely on unrestored or all original Panteras to appreciate over time and enthusiasts can enjoy driving an Italian exotic with a mid-engine American V8 backed up by an extensive catalog of available equipment and a strong community.
This Pantera is an excellent example of a first generation chrome bumper model. It has been carefully maintained by a meticulous car collector who has owned the car for the past four years. The car has had its original cylinder heads rebuilt and its intake manifold and carburetors (originals included) replaced with improved Edelbrock and Holley units. New spark plugs, wires, accessory drive belts were added and its vulnerable cooling system tubes have been replaced.
Additionally all of the hard to find badges including the Power by Ford badge on the deck lid which took a year to find plus the DeTomaso logo wheel center caps, horn button and floor mats are present. The car has no rust, visible or hidden. Its original staggered Campagnolo magnesium alloy wheels are now shod with Hancook Ventus tires. Records and receipts since purchase four years ago are included.
This vehicle is being offered for sale only because the owner is thinning out his collection.
