Looking for an overall original unmolested and correct chrome bumper Pantera? They are becoming almost impossible to find recently and MotoeXotica is pleased to present this 1972 DeTomaso Pantera (Italian for panther), a classic example of the Italian-American cooperation between Ford and DeTomaso during the early to mid-1970s. This unit was built in May 1972 at DeTomasos factory in Modena, Italy. It arrived at the Baltimore, Maryland Port of Entry in September 1972 and was delivered to the Buffalo, New York region. The original owner purchased it at Carl Foss Lincoln-Mercury, Inc., in Rochester, New York on June 22, 1973. The mileage is understood to be actual at 17,000 as stated by the previous long time owner but is sold as mileage exempt due to age.
This model was one of 46 Panteras ordered from the Buffalo, NY region; it is one of 558 Panteras painted this color; one of 171 Panteras made in May 1972 and one of 2,131 produced in 1972.
The cars correct yellow paint and trim are in overall very good order, with minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. The windows are clear and crack-free while the cars lights are in satisfactory order. The cars bodywork is solid and straight, its engine bay is tidy and is highly original with its correct valve cover decals, the battery is in very good order and the small cargo area forward of the cabin is in satisfactory order. There is a second area to stow luggage and other items after of the mid-mounted engine and this Pantera still contains its original space saver tire, the jack, original bag and air canister. The cars chrome bumpers fit well to the body and offer a great contrast to the yellow body color.
This Pantera rolls on Pirelli Cinturato tires, 185/70VR15 in front and 225/70VR15 in back. Each tire surrounds a 15-inch original Campagnolo Magnesium sport wheels that still have their original factory stickers on them!
Behind the front seats is Fords 351 CID 4V Cleveland High Output V-8 engine. The engine breathes through dual exhausts that split further into quad pipes before they exit at the rear and the motor is mated to the correct ZF synchronized five-speed manual transmission. Driver assist options include air-conditioning, power four-wheel disc brakes and power windows.
Inside the interior is pretty much original and looks great for being so! The black bucket seats are in excellent condition, as is the matching carpet. The headliner is in decent condition while the three-spoke steering wheel looks great. The instrument panel, with its full array of gauges (including a speedometer marked to 200 mph and a tachometer marked to 8,000 rpm) facing the driver, and the inner door panels are all in very good condition, as is the gated shifter. Completing the interior is a aftermarket Becker AM/FM stereo.
Several modifications were made for the 1972 model year Panteras. A newfour-bolt mainCleveland Engine, also 351CID, was used with lowercompression ratiobut with the more aggressive Cobra Jet camshaft (featuring the same lift and duration as the 428 Cobra Jet's factory performance cam) in an effort to reclaim some of the power lost through the compression reduction along with a dual point distributor. Many other engine changes were made, including the use of a factoryexhaust header.
Competition to this Pantera in 1972 included AMCs AMX, Aston Martins DBS, the Avanti II, Chevrolets Corvette, Ferraris 365GTB/4 Daytona, Jaguars V-12 2+2, and Maseratis Indy America 4700. Documentation includes multiple photographs and a Deluxe Marti Report.
