This car still retains it's classic look, while modern upgrades add to it's awesome performance., , Just for information, this is a great example of early 70's race cars made for the street. It is and will always be the most affordable "super car". It can compete head to head with any cars of the era. And now that we are in the year 2010, it makes even more sense. With all of the new technology available today, they can be upgraded "very reasonably" and be able to keep up the latest range of super cars. Since this car has such a strong following, any and all of the parts needed to restore and maintain these cars are easily available. I had an 82 corvette and had more trouble locating parts than with this 72 Pantera. For the price that a Ferrari or Porsche owner pays for a tune up, a Pantera owner can buy a brand new engine, (and this one puts out just under 600 h.p.) and since this car is a 72, there are no emission controls. , , • New engine from Ford Performance 11.5: 1 compression ratio, roller rockers and full blueprint, new clutch, 2,800 miles since build. , • High-torque starter, • 180-degree headers, ceramic coated., • Transmission pulled; checked out, ring gear safety wired., • Fluidyne aluminum high performance radiator system with two fans (and two solenoids)., • 2 shut off valves for heater lines (required for running on the track)., • Stainless Steel Pressure and overflow tanks, overflow tank has coolant level site glass., • Stainless steel coolant lines., • Replaced heater lines to passenger compartment with copper., • Hall double adjustable shocks and stiffer springs., • Hall Corvette brake upgrade (so that now it really can stop), • All suspension components have been powder coated., • 1-inch sway bars, solid front and hollow rear, both with spherical bushings., • 4-piece frame support kit., • All exterior parts were either chromed, polished or powder coated., • Hall Pantera white face gauges (still have originals)., • Saddle tan leather interior (much cooler in the summer)., • Smoothed and Rhino Lined engine compartment (replicates the original finish but is stronger, more durable, and just better looking)., • Vader racing window regulators (Solves all the problems with the stock regulator. Raises and lowers the window completely in about 2 seconds, and the windows go all of the way down. Weighs ½ the original regulator and motor assembly. Uses modern cable drive)., • Wilkinson removable steering wheel (have original, missing cover)., • Custom battery mount., • Custom American Racing wheels17 x 8 in front, 17x 12 in the rear (have original wheels, powder coated, with the last of the OEM tires)., • Comments: We like this car a whole lot. It has a lot of great improvements. This is a performance car by all means but built for comfort and speed. The paintwork is presentable but there are some minor defects and a small door dings. The color chosen for this car was a metallic blue that in the sun is the original color, it is a beautiful color. The A\C system is intact, and installed, and has been updated with a rotary compressor. There is no radio, with a car like this the motor is all the music you want or need. The rear deck struts still hold open, so no prop stick needed to look at the engine! , While this car still hast the original seats, it also includes a set of corvette seats which have been re-covered in the same leather as the, but have not been installed., This included a large number of parts that were retained while the car was being updated, including the fiberglass trunk, the original wheels with the last set of BF Goodrich tires that were made to fit the Panteras stock rear wheels., The price for this car is $56,500, or best offer. This will also include a car cover to keep it clean. You know you want this, what are you waiting for. Now you can have it, and make your friends envious! , We need to move this out to make room for projects coming in! We will entertain any reasonable offer!
