There is a Gr-3 Supplemental Parts Catalogue that lists a Holley carb and intake, ID-ed as 'Holley 213', DeTomaso part # 112 416, for Panteras. DeTomaso used his own part numbers on things sold in Europe, not necessarily Ford's part numbers. The Gr-3 History calls this a Holley 650 #4777, as George mentioned. Note that a DeTomaso 4-carb intake and four 48IDA Weber carbs were also listed as options. The GTS/GR-3 was a street legal upgrade version of the standard narrow body car sold in Europe as the GTS. Many Euro GTS had a few Gr-3 parts added by unknown sources, as they were widely available. Parts in the Supplement could be ordered direct from the factory, from local dealers who installed them at time of sale or picked up at the factory in Modena, IT later on and home-installed. Contact Anders Hellburg in Sweden for more information & details on GTS/Gr-3 (anders.hellburg@scuderiadetomaso.se)


Just picking up this thread again. I have a copy of the GTS supplementary parts catalogue and as Boss Wrench says here and other places, a Holley carburetor, referred to in the catalogue as part number 213 is mentioned. However, I haven't seen any documents saying that it is a Holley 4777 650cfm double pumper. It would be great if someone could point me in the right direction for this evidance, because I would like to be able to show it to any inspectors in the future (as demands for original or period corrrect modifications slowly tighten) that may question what was available from the factory in period.

Great info and pictures on the intake manifolds George - it sure was a quick and dirty way of installing a square bore carb!

Cheers, Tim.
