The use of the “Pre-L” term and when to use it is interesting. Technically the term “Pre-L” only applies to 1972 cars because that is the year that the L transition was made. Needless to say the 1972 transition was quite haphazard as everyone has seen with the strange combinations during the transition. There were no L cars in 1971, so all 1971 cars are just good old 1971 Panteras and no L reference. Thus only the 1972 Panteras before the L transition are actually Pre-L Panteras. When you say “Pre-L” everyone should know that it could only be a 1972 Pantera.
