Highly desirable 1972 pre-L small bumper De Tomaso Pantera. I am a multiple Pantera owner and member of the Pantera Owners Club of America. I am also an avid Ford collector and enamored with the marque.
This specimen was in the hands of the original owner for over 40 years in Arizona. The car was originally built and delivered the very unique Pantera yellow and somewhere during its life was painted blue by the first owner. These cars are prone to rust but fortunately 3480 lived in moisture free Arizona and was able to remain pristine. The Marti Report shows that it was built in April of 1972, painted yellow and delivered to a LM dealer in Long Beach CA. Many yellow Panteras were originally less desirable colors and the current status does not match the Marti Report. When one is seeking an investment vehicle originality matters quite a bit especially when it comes to color. The car is currently in its proper color. The car has been extensively restored cosmetically and mechanically. Interior has been restored with new seat covers and doors panels etc. Car has also been gone through mechanically by my race shop with updated cooling system including but not limited to lines, hoses, thermostat and radiator. Engine is the 351 Cleveland with Edelbrock Performer aluminum intake and Holley carburetor. Tires are the correct Michelins as on the car in 1972. The car has a clean title in the name of my Montana LLC. This car is guaranteed to draw a crowd at your local car show.
Paint and exterior
Car has been repainted to its original color as confirmed by the Marti Report. Cover photo taken outdoors more accurately reflects the actual shade of yellow of the car.
Upholstery and interior
Seats and door panels have been professionally redone to match the original.
To the best of my knowledge based on statements from the seller's family and examination of the vehicle prior to restoration the mileage is correct. But any vehicle 50 years old may very well be TMU.
Wheels and tires
Factory wheels with period correct Michelin X radial tires.
Stock Pantera brakes with new lines and calipers rebuilt.
5 speed ZF transmission.
