Vehicle Description

1973 DeTomaso Pantera

Why This Car Is Special

Skyway Classics has a super rare 1973 DeTomaso Pantera painted in Grabber Blue here for sale. When is the last time you have seen one of these rare Supercars for sale anywhere?

Alejandro De Tomaso, who produced the Mangusta Coupe, commissioned Lamborghini designer Gianpaolo Dallara to produce the chassis for a Ford/Mercury Motor Company project, the mid-engine supercar by the name of Pantera.

Ford Motor Company became DeTomaso's partner for the introduction of this car series in 1971. Like the earlier Mangusta, the Pantera relied on a Ford V8 power plant backed by a ZF 5-speed transaxle.

Pantera was distributed through select Lincoln-Mercury dealerships in the USA until 1974, and ours has been modified to make it a very fast street and track car.

Mechanical

This 1973 DeTomaso Pantera has just a tad over 41,000 original miles on the odometer. The built 351 cubic inch engine in this Pantera is a Cleveland Ford V8 that produced 266 horsepower and 301 lb-ft of torque with single 4-barrel carburetor when new, but now has over 450 horsepower and we have a dyno sheet that show it plants 390 of those horses at the rear wheel.

It has been rebuilt with aluminum heads, finned aluminum valve covers, K&N air filter system, performance Holley carb, aluminum intake, and a ZF 5-speed manual transmission.

This supercar is better looking and more powerful than new and has been modified into a track car as well as a super street car with a lowered independent unequal length A-arm suspension with front and rear anti-sway bars that works with rack-and-pinion steering for supercar-level road control.

The Pantera rolls on fat super wide black sidewall radial performance tires mounted on custom wheels made in Australia and has other mods such as a custom built radiator with dual cooling fans, dual fuel tanks with the stock one and a racing fuel cell up front, and racing triple safety harnesses inside the cockpit.

Interior

Our exotic Pantera offers an interior just as worthy of praise as does the engine and exterior. It consists of twin bucket seats with aromatic and supple leather upholstery and tweed inserts.

The dash is angular and has large clusters of gauges front and center with auxiliary gauges on the center stack cleverly angled towards the driver.

It has A/C but the Sandison air compressor on the car has been disconnected and a spare one goes with the sale.
The 5-speed gearbox looks great with the Ferrari-like polished gate and electric windows add luxury to the '70s-perfect interior. A 200 MPH speedometer and tachometer are ready to gauge 6-second 0-60 MPH launches and the Pantera's over 175 MPH top speed.

This rare supercar can literally be driven every day in comfort without issues and it will really impress everyone in attendance at the track.

Exterior

This American-market Pantera has a super bright Grabber Blue paint job that shines as the paint just flows over the sleek body with the scooped hood, exhaust tips, and fender flares.

This low mileage Pantera has drop-dead looks, blistering performance and extreme rarity, this Pantera has it all.

Conclusion

The 1973 DeTomaso Pantera we have here at Skyway Classics is an iconic Italian-American Supercar that delivers jaw-dropping performance and the exotic looks that will make it a celebrity everywhere it goes.
