Powering this Pantera is the original, numbers matching, 351 cubic inch V8 Ford Cleveland. That is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The seller also notes that the car has the original Campagnolo Wheels, that have 10 inches of rubber in the rear, and that they have the original Goodyear Arriva tires. They do say that the tires were properly stored once they were taken off shortly after the purchase of the car.

Inside, the car still has the original radio and complementing power antenna. The seller notes that the car does have air conditioning, which works, and power windows, that also work. The glass is original. A feature that would make any car aficionado proud, is that the car still has all the original books and accessories, including the jack, tools, and spare tire. There are also other NOS parts that come with it.

The seller indicates in the listing that with the rise in popularity of these cars, and the originality of this specific one, that it could in fact be an investment vehicle. They state that wealthy people in Dubai and Kuwait are starting to purchase pristine examples of these cars to add to their collections. At the current bid price, you would have to start considering what you would want to do with this car. Are you someone who would store it or drive it?

    You just have to smile and shake your head at these sellers giving potential buyers financial advise. “Its worth lots more than it’s actual value ’cause its an investment”. Sure it is. “And wealthy foreigners are going to buy them all, so you better overpay for mine”. Right.
    Nice car and all, but still only worth what a used ’74 Pantera is worth, not some unknown future value.

      And the helmet is a good indication it was never driven hard.

        They were built to be driven hard!

        Probably not to the point of needing a helmet.

        In any sanctioned road course event, you must wear a helmet!

    You’ll need Koolomat for heat and noise reduction.

    Good looking car,and the price is very good at this time but below the reserve! And the 10″ campys wheels are rare and expensive!

    Ran across this older listing again and thought I’d add, after seeing it here and pursuing for awhile, I ended up buying this car. It is just as good as presented. Don’t give up too easily if you see a car here you really like. Sometimes it works out!
