THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This 1972 De Tomaso Pantera sold new to Meyer Lincoln / Mercury of Lock Haven, Pennsylvania. An early "L" model this car uses the early "stitched" dashboard with separate gauge pods as opposed to the later molded dash. This particular example is a largely original car that has covered just over 7,800 miles from new.

The car is largely original with a respray being the only cosmetic restoration work performed. The paintwork was done to very good standards and remains nearly unmarked. It appears that the original paint was saved in a few areas such as on the cowl and the center rear panel. The body is straight and solid with no corrosion and great panel fit and gaps throughout. The brightwork is in excellent original condition throughout save for some pitting on the side mirror. The wheels appear to be original and unrestored and are showing some age, fitted with period Goodyear Arrivas tires. Looking inside the cabin, this low mileage example shows nearly no major signs of wear.

In 2011, this Pantera received an impressive list of mechanical updates such as a rebuilt clutch slave cylinder, rebuilt brake master cylinder, restoration of the brake booster, two rebuilt brake calipers, ceramic coating of the headers, new steering rack bushings, new sway bar bushings, new steering rack boots, new AC compressor, new AC dryer, replacement of some water pipes, and servicing of the radiator. Since, the car has had regular fluid changes. Most recently, in 2014, the head gasket was replaced with the current seller of the car, keeping this example in running order throughout.

This Pantera is complete with original MSO, window sticker, owner's manual, and service records from the last few years showing mechanical servicing. Today, the Pantera remains a favorite amongst many automotive enthusiasts. This well preserved, low mileage example is a step back to a beautiful time in automotive design with a collaboration of American Muscle with Italian design.
