1973 De Tomaso Other
This is my 1973 De Tomaso Pantera. It is arguably the nicest Pantera you are going to find in the country. This car is stunning and perfect from the inside out. Very original with just the right touch of extras to make it the perfect Pantera. Cooling is not an issue with the NASCAR cooling fans, (see pic) AC blows ice cold. Ignitions in the Pantera's tend to break easily so there is a push to start button to avoid the potential ignition issues. (something only a true Pantera aficionado would think of)The car has LED turn signals and carbon fiber rear bumpers and shaves side markers. The motor is a 351 stroked out to 393. It puts out about 510 hp. The transmission is the original ZF trans that's been rebuilt and polished. The handling on this car is like that of a modern Ferrari due to its adjustable suspension. The headlights come up about halfway and have the square light. It looks so much more sleek and aerodynamic than all the way extended with the round lights. There is a new show coming out on the History Channel called car hunters and this Pantera will be the highlight car on the season finale in June of this year. The show will debut April 26th. This car will be shown on the track and you will be able to see what I'm talking about. Some of the pictures are just to show us filming the show so you know I'm not blowing smoke. We had a ball. I fully expect this cars value to increase after the show airs. It's the one and only time the car has been tracked but it was incredible and worth it to see. This is a once in a lifetime car. This is only for the serious collector but also a collector that wants to drive. Its wicked fast and you can take your hands off the steering wheel at 100 mph and the car stays straight as an arrow. I have owned all the modern super cars and this car drives as well and is more fun to take for a spin on a Saturday night or Sunday afternoon. If you enter this car in a show it wins. I've never seen it not get some hardware at the end of a show. No rattles, shakes, or odd noises, no stories! Drive across town or across country. This car will speak for itself. Paint? I don't even need to say. Its beautiful!
