Hey guys, first I probably ought to introduce myself. My name is Jonathan and I am a classic car dealer in Atlanta, Georgia called Motorcar Studio. We typically deal with European sports cars (we love aircooled 911s) and vintage 4x4s, but we also love anything cool and unique. Recently, a client of mine brought me this '74 Pantera that he found in storage in Mississippi. As original as it is, we thought we would reach out to the community of enthusiasts because if anyone would appreciate the car, it would be the enthusiasts. You can check out more photos of the car on our website (we have about 50, as well as a video) but I'll include photos below along with our written description:



Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1974 De Tomaso Pantera -- a true "barn find" in storage in Mississippi since 1978. Very original inside and out, including original 15x7 and 15x8 Campagnolo wheels. Paint is mostly original. A two-owner, time-capsule car with 22k original miles and zero known rust. Interior is remarkably well preserved; gorgeous Veglia gauges are clear and working. We've flushed the fuel system and done an oil service and tune-up -- Ford 351 Cleveland starts and runs well with no smoke; clutch and ZF five-speed gearbox also feel excellent. We've taken her around the block a few times but we would recommend tires and additional minor cooling and brake system sorting before putting her back on the road. Initially viewed as an oddball, the Pantera's combination of Italian design and coachwork, American V8 and German gearbox have come to be appreciated and desired by today's collectors. A remarkable find -- a running and driving, low mileage, very original survivor Pantera that needs minimal sorting. For more information about this 1974 DeTomaso Pantera for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.

Asking $76,900

Nice one Jonathan! Getting a replacement pad for that steering wheel would really help your presentation. Also, do you have the rear engine cover and tub? Looks like the rear bumper has been moved closer to the back end as well.

Nice car, good luck with the sale.

Just my 2 cents but I'm a bit skeptical on the 22K miles claim. Missing pieces, the steering wheel,some rust,worn seats, and a "mostly original" paint job would make me want to see all records (they should be around if it has been stored since 1978).
