This is the real deal, the VIN tells all. Check it out on Chucks sight, or google Playboy Pink Pantera, see before & current pictures. The racing seats go with the purchase, we've since installed comfy leather seats w/logo. The engine is a Stroker featuring a Break-out box, THREE stage & Launch Control. This car is built. Balls to the wall power. Runs cool. Drives tight. Hydro Boost Brakes, Steering interlocked to pump allows Power Steering we've added next to the compressor. The brakes will put you through the glass of you stomp them! 

We offer Pantera Parts/Sales/Service in house. We do world class restorations. We sell at Live Auction. We break world records every year, 4 years running. Like the chrome bumper sold at Mecum 90 days ago @ $140k. We built that car. Year before we set a world record for a '74 GTS. We export world wide from Port Everglades & Port of Miami. I try to keep a fine [albeit diverse]  Pantera selection for sale... offering projects, chrome bumper cars, L Models, GT5 & GT5-Steel Models all in stock well sorted out ready to enjoy. Visit panteramiami.com for details or call 305-322-9108.

As an aside, being a Forum Sponsor, I ask...readers, please consider contributing  to the sight, George & Debbie work tirelessly on this for your viewing pleasure, it burns up countless hours as you can imagine. WAYYYYY over a Million views per year exposure. Imagine the time they spend on this, & never ask for contributions. Let's be fair :-)20180804_09352220180803_15030420180803_15043120180804_093605

This car is a real dilemma for me.  I have a strong lean toward wanting to see it back to the Playboy Pink configuration but if I owned it I don't think I would ever drive it in Pink.  See where I'm going with this? 

This doesn't bear any resemblance to the Pink Pantera, perhaps at best "the car formerly known as the Playboy Pantera", it will cost some serious money to revert this, good luck with the restoration/reversion, will be interesting to see what it fetches when done.

Cutting flares out is just another day at Pantera Miami. We've done ROLL OVERS.IMG_1632 - CopyIMG_1643 - CopyIMG [6)IMG [7) - CopyIMG [8) - CopyIMG [1) - Copy

Cool which auction will you be taking the pink panther to?

Gary Cosgrove of Thousand Oaks acquired #2421 disassembled for $16K. He apparently is the owner who modified it with the Grp 4 flares, etc. Body work, paint, engine work, and all the custom parts brought the price of his investment to $60K.  He began taking it to shows in 1986.

All detailed by Cosgrove in Pantera International magazine, Fall 1995, issue 84.

I guess as with many things at the time it wasn’t valued for what it might be today. The question is will anyone pay a premium for a ‘has been’?

No plans for that sales are quiet this time of year. Maybe Barrett Scottsdale or Mecum Kissimmee next year.
