The resurrection of #4899 - a Group 4 inspired journey..

When midlife crisis hits and the only cure seems to be an Italian mid engine car - then the Pantera is the perfect drug! Having built a 68 Mustang previously the thing I know was that I wanted a car that could handle, not only red light races but corners as well! And since I really love those massive wheel arches on the Group 4 cars my mind got set on building a full out race car. Or, well, maybe. Wouldn’t it be nice if I was able to drive it on public roads? Or even Historic Racing? Or why...Read More...

ZF Gear Speedo Ratio /1 and /2

Hello all, I have a question regarding the speedo gear ratio in the ZF: The 5DS25/1 has a ratio of 2.4 (5 teeth on output shaft and 12 on the speedo shaft), the /2 has a ratio of 2 (6 and 12). The 90° adapter has a 1:1 ratio in both versions. Do they have a different ratio in the speedometer? Or is something else not original in the above said gear configurations? Background is, that I have a slightly worn worm gear with 5 teeth and a perfect one with 6 teeth and wondering what to build in...Read More...

team, looking for some advice before I launch this project. When I pulled 4072 out of winter sleep my OEM gas pedal snapped in half. I ordered a new one but would like to ask the team, can I just remove the old pedal arm from under the dash or do I have to remove the entire pedal assembly with brake and clutch to replace? Looking at the schematics it looks like I could remove my seat and tap out a retaining pin on the pedal??? ThanksRead More...

repro mangusta tool kit for sale

In case you are not often on Ebay.it, seller has also advertised without the tools for less. The spanners and spark plug wrench are not quite right, the pliers don't have the 'wings', the leatherwork is too beautiful... but all in all not a bad kit... https://www.ebay.com/itm/TOOL-KIT-BAG-DE-TOMASO-MANGUSTA-no-kit-ferrari-maserati-porsche-pantera/193242887640?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649Read More...

SS ZF Vent Tube

Bought one from Pantera Performance, It has a screw on fitting, but I can't figure how that's suppose to attach to the existing tube. Surely you don't remove the existing one and tap the hole for the threaded fitting, because that's never going to happen! Wonder why it couldn't have been made to simply press fit over the tube or attach it via a flexible tube, something much less invasive?Read More...

Original wheels and tyres.

Because they are such rare cars data is difficult to come by . I have some old books from period that say 185-15 front and 225-15 Rear . do you know what brand and tread? i think there are a lot of low profile tyres out...Read More...

I am searching for a driver's side engine cover. The one with the bulge for the external fuel filler neck. It's the bottom one in the diagram below. Mike Mayberry has a bunch of the earlier style covers but I am hoping to find the correct one for my car.Read More...

P.O.C.A. Parts Cross Reference (from 1993)

This information came as an insert in a 1993 POCA newsletter. I wanted to post it at the POCA Forum, but there doesn't seem to be a way for me to post attachments there. I also wanted to thank JFB5177 for formatting the PDF for me. Anyway - you will probably have problems sourcing the parts from the cars listed, but I hope this provides valuable information to someone. It's useful to have in your collection. RockyRead More...

Mystery Turn Signal Switch

I found this switch in spare parts. It seems to be different then the switch I have in my 1973. The Part number on it is 70EB--13335-A1A. 8 wire connector. Is this worth anything to anyone. I doubt it works. Why else would it be in the spare parts pile I got with the car when I bought it. Feels OK.Read More...
