1974 Pantera is partially restored. It just got out of the body
in late December. The car was stripped down and all
of the dents and dings were repaired prior to painting. The result
is very good. The car is painted in a blood red finish with PPG
paint and contrasting black hoods. Our concept was to create a
Group 3 replica. We did not put on fender flares but very well
could if desired.
car had been stored for a great deal of time. It formerly belonged
to a Ford dealer. The engine runs very well and the car is
drivable. However, all systems need updating such as the cooling
system, A/C, brakes and any mechanicals that require it.
- The dashboard is cracked
and needs to be recovered, perhaps in leather. The interior needs
trim work on the carpets and seats to improve on the current state
of condition and to bring the car up to the level of the paint. We
show the car with our PIM dash cover and floor mats. These items
are included with the car.
California 10 spoke 17 inch wheels and tires are brand new and are
included with the car.
and brakes are stock. We would recommend modern adjustable
aluminum shocks and our Group 5 brake system as a great upgrade.
engine is very stock and can be tuned up, modified or replaced
with our 540 horsepower plus Hammer at extra cost.
enthusiasts may prefer to simply bring this car back to its
original presentation, while others would use this as a great
platform to customize or "resto-mod" to their tastes. A
racing application can also be considered at this point.
most difficult challenge Pantera owners face is getting paint work
and bodywork. It can cost $10,000.00 or more and result in your
car sitting in a body shop for months or even years. Here, this car
has that important step completed and the original Pantera itself
was a great candidate for restoration, not suffering from advanced
rust or collision damage.
car is NOT for an enthusiast who is under the belief they can
simply put it to full use upon purchase. This is a restoration project
that requires time and money to finish. We can complete this car
to your requirements and budget. Talk to us about this car if it
interests you. We think it is a great Pantera for the money and
considering what has been done so far.
