1962 Panther 650cc Model 120
Registration no. JAS 420
Frame no. 27269
Engine no. 62ZA236A
Post-WW2, Panther added medium-weight 250/350cc models with vertical engines to the range, but its largest models retained the inclined engine that had been around since the dawn of time and served as the frame's downtube. In 1959 an enlarged (to 645cc) Model 120 joined the 594cc Model 100, and the former would be Panther's sole Panther four-stroke from 1964 until production ceased in 1968.

With their low-revving engines and limitless pulling power, the big Panthers had long been a favourite of sidecarists, and this example was previously registered as a motorcycle combination. 'JAS 420' was acquired in April 2015 from one Andrew Smith of Eastleigh, its owner since October 2012. Mr Smith's advertisement states that the engine is a replacement unit dating from 1962, and that it had been completely rebuilt approximately 8,000 miles previously by the former owner. Other noteworthy features listed include 12-volt electrics, stainless steel wheels rims and wheel spindles, rebuilt magneto with external condenser, and numerous stainless-steel fastenings. Since acquisition, the gearbox has been rebuilt, the clutch renewed, new tyres fitted, and a new fuel tank sourced. Bills relating to the foregoing are available, and the substantial history file also contains a Panther Owners Club dating letter, POC spares list, DVLA correspondence, a quantity of expired MoTs, sundry invoices for parts and servicing, and old/current V5C Registration Certificates.
