1972 DeTomaso Pantera
Genuinely, where do we start with this wonderful example of true 70’s Italian lines paired with pure american muscle !
Often over looked when people shop for Italian sports cars – Well this one is a little different….
Firstly – This is an Ex American dry state car, so as you would expect it is supplied with a completely rust free body and we mean completely! This car has never had a welder near it since it left the factory in 1972. This also means that this car has been completely accident free for the whole of its existence too – Any inspection is more than welcome.
Moving on the the more “technical” side of the spec of this car. It is a matching numbers car but the original 351 Cleveland engine arrives with the car in a crate. In its place there is now a Cleveland that has been “adulterated”. The engine spec is now as follows 393CUI stroker motor with a high lift fast road cam, Aluminium heads, roller rockers, MSD ignition, Demon Ram air inlet mounted to a double pumper Holley Carb.
The result of this spec is 450BHP at the wheels with a dyno print out to prove! All of this power is delivered through a freshly rebuild Dog leg ZF transaxle to the rear wheels “the good old fashioned way!”
To add to this impressive power plant comes the equally impressive suspension and brake set up 6 Pot willwood brake calipers upfront with oversized rotors and uprated disc brakes on the rear, Fully poly-bushed suspension 17″ Campagnolo replica wheels with a wider offset front and rear to cope with the power along with much much more.
An opportunity surely not to be missed. This is a car tipped to only appreciate in the time to come.
