Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to present this 1972
DeTomaso Pantera Custom! This vehicle is one of only a handful
known to have been 3rd gen Coyote swapped! Sit back, relax, and
take your time to work through the photos and writeup for this one
of a kind moving piece of art! A mid-engine sports car produced by
the Italians - Ford opted to sell these through their dealer
network beginning in 1972. The Pantera was supposed to be the more
accessible road going version of GT40 race cars. The custom wheels,
and overall styling of this build pay homage to the GT40 in many
subtle details. The one off three-piece ESR wheels are different
enough but have their GT40 roots squarely planted. The powerplant
is a Ford Motorsport Coyote crate engine with a performance pack
option. The factory ZF 5 speed transaxle has had the overdrive
ratio tweaked to support effortless and economical highway
cruising. Helping handle the Coyote torque and horsepower are
custom CV driveshafts. A McLeod clutch and custom Quiktime
bellhousing help mate the partnership together. The interior is a
beautifully blue Scottish leather seating with black accents on the
doors and black carpeting. If the sound of horsepower isn't enough
the Pantera features a Bluetooth audio system, power windows, and
functioning power mirrors from a late model GM production vehicle.
The wiring was provided by American Autowire highway systems, and
the headlights are updated halogen projectors with electric motors
powering the pop-up housing. A Vintage Air heating and cooling
system is present and functional along with a push to start button
and electronic handbrake. The interior also offers auxiliary power
for whatever charging needs may arise. For stopping power Willwood
calipers and master cylinder apply manual braking effort and do so
smoothly and sharply. The manual brakes help with driver feel and
are more than adequate even for daily use if one desired. For some
suspensions goodies there is a custom truss in the engine bay,
custom Eibach springs, Koni adjustable shocks. The front suspension
also features modified control arms, adjustable caster and camber
settings. The Lecarra steering wheel is removable as well. There
appears to be no stone unturned on this build and performance and
functionality go hand in hand wherever one looks at this car! This
1972 DeTomaso Pantera Custom is offered by the St. Louis sales
staff and can be seen in full detail on our website. Our listing
all include 100+ HD photos and a detailed video!
