The Hawaii "Paradise Pantera" 4 owner 1973 L with 27,524 original miles. Rust free, always kept in a closed garage and never driven in inclimate weather. This car has always been loved, well cared for and is full of upgrades. Totally reliable, never a hint of problems, it runs cool, never above 195 degrees even with the A/C on in traffic. A/C blows cool! This car is not a show trailer queen but is in very good condition and has been featured in Pantera International Magazine and POCA Profiles.

The drive train was recently pulled out and the engine bay, fuel tank area were all scraped of undercoating and painted. The fuel tank was in excellent condition and was also repainted. There was no hint of rust even in the hidden areas where it usually shows up. The engine was totally regasketed, painted and flywheel, clutch disc and pressure plate replaced.

I think someone got a great deal on your car. I hope you are not leaving us completely!


Never, I have made many life long friends here and plan to be around whether I own a Pantera or not. I have learned a lot over the past 5 years of ownership of 3 cats and a goose and will always be willing to share what I have learned.
