The website make this car seem pretty cherry, that's why I bought it, but it actually needed a lot of work and time to sort out the car. I had a friend of a friend drive down to see the car in person and he said the car was pretty nice like a 8/10 but in actually it was a 4/10 and needed a lot to restore it to its current condition.
Hi Benchu, interesting to hear you say that. I contacted the owner a few years ago - probably around 6 or more, when he had it for sale, and as you say it looked fantastic in the pictures. I enquired a bit and heard it had a few bubbles and got some photos sent. I read as much as possible about Panteras and got a bit nervous about potential issues and got put off by the local US car importers not wanting to help me with import. So I passed it up. I always wondered aboout it.
