The Pantera wa designed by the Italian design firm Ghia's American-born designer Tom Tjaarda. Unlike the De Tomaso Mangusta before it, the Pantera used a steel monocoque design.
There are not many manufacturers that have as interesting of a history as De Tomaso. Alejandro de Tomaso was born in Argentina to a wealthy family of cattle ranchers. In his early twenties he had to flee to Italy because he was caught trying to overthrow the Argentinian government. Once in Italy, he met his wife Isabelle who was an american heiress with plenty of money. De Tomaso used this money to fund his racing ventures in Formula 1 racing under the Maserati brand. After scoring no championship points in four races, he was cut from the team and turned to his next automotive venture. He started De Tomaso, his own Italian sports car brand named after himself. As an homage to his family in Argentina.
Ford assisted in the production and quality control of the Pantera. Ford also signed a deal to exclusively sell the Pantera in America through Lincoln Mercury dealers. Although this relationship fell apart in 1975, roughly 5,500 Pantera's were sold in America through this partnership.
