THE DE TOMASO PANTERA

Having established himself as a serious automobile manufacturer with the Mangusta coupé, Allesandro De Tomaso commissioned Lamborghini designer Gianpaolo Dallara to produce the chassis for his new mid-engined supercar, the Pantera. The Ford Motor Company was De Tomaso's partner at the time of its conception and thus the Pantera, like the Mangusta, relied on Ford V8 power. The 351ci (5.8-litre) engine varied in output depending on the destination market and in European trim came with 330bhp, or 350bhp as installed in the Pantera GTS. With either option the Pantera could sprint to 60mph (97km/h) in a little over six seconds and touch 160mph (257km/h) flat out. Most Panteras were sold with automatic transmission, though the GTS was available with a ZF five-speed manual gearbox. Styled by Tom Tjaarda at Carrozzeria Ghia, the stunning coupé body was, in fact, built by Vignale, both companies being part of the De Tomaso's empire in the early 1970s.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Presented here is a very low mileage, highly original example of the DeTomaso's enduring creation, the Pantera. Built in September of 1971 in De Tomaso's Modena factory, this Pantera was delivered new in Nebraska only to spend the better part of its pampered life in California. The vehicle was delivered new with a plethora of features as listed on the window sticker: Air conditioning, magnesium sport wheels, dazzling yellow paint, power windows, tinted glass, full instrumentation and a 351-4V engine.

Its owners have used the car very sparingly, as confirmed by less than 8,000 miles appearing on the odometer, and have more importantly, kept the car running through routine maintenance and recurrent short drives. Both inside and out the car presents very well.

Being sold with the car are the stock silver Campy magnesium 15" wheels mounted on original Michelin tires which have been kept safely stored for preservation. The car also comes with a Marti report, tool kit, and window sticker.

Now is a wonderful opportunity to get behind the wheel of a highly desirable early iteration of the Pantera. Sure to attract attention wherever it goes, this low mileage car will be a fine addition to any stable.
