Vehicle Description

Zoom Classic Cars presents this beautiful 1973 De Tomaso Pantera L. This beautifully designed and first American mid engine sports car created by Alejandro DeTomaso and backed by the might of the Ford Motor Company was produced by Italian manufacturer De Tomaso and designed by American born Tom Tjaarda who worked for Italian design firm Carrozzeria Ghia. The Pantera was the automaker's most popular model, with over 7,000 manufactured over its twenty-year production run. More than three quarters of the production was sold by American Lincoln-Mercury dealers from 1972 to 1975 including this 1973. The car replaced the more expensive Mangusta. This particular example has been owned by the current owner for more than 25 years and features the 351CI 330HP 4 bolt main Cleveland engine with solid lifters, Holley carb set up and mild cam presented in a very clean engine compartment.

The car has 4 wheel independent suspension and power assisted disc brakes all around. For the US market, the car featured a large single front bumper that was designed to reduce the front end lift. Car was repainted in stock color Flame Red serveral years ago by Wareham Ford in MA. The body was completely disassembled, prepped and painted and then expertly reassembled. Durng the reassembly all of the rubber and felts were replaced. The paint is still in overall excellent condtion. Interior features black bucket seats in great condition, clean dash with no splits or cracks and a new headliner. The car features the spoiler wing which was a $600 option back in 73. Tires are P25560R15 in the rear and 22550R15 in the front. All the glass in the car is original and in very nice condition. Only glass flaw is an inside crack in the passenger corner of the windshield as shown. All the gauges in the car work as they should. Pantera insignia carpets.

The car has a clean title, has passed recent MA inspection and comes with many extra original parts including radiator and set of original bucket seats, a folder containing 25 years of parts and service receipts and numerous editions of Pantera Magazine. A thrilling sports car that blends robust American running gear with svelte Italian design. Needless to say that this is one striking vehicle that runs and drives excellent and sounds great!
