I am posting this for a fellow Pantera owner here in Michigan. I have seen the car very recently, but have not driven it or given it a thorough inspection. I will post the info I was given and a brief comment about the car will follow. If anyone is seriously considering buying this car I would be happy to go through it for you and check out everything, just let me know.

I know the dark green metalic paint sounds wierd, but it is so dark that it looks black and you can't really tell until you look up close. In my opinion the paint scheme looks great, and it's a high quality paint job. The engine will make you drool.......Very nice! Wheels and tires appear to be new and are in great shape. The car has L style front and rear bumpers and has a dual pod dash. Interior has newly recovered stock seats and is very clean. The mileage shown on the odometer is 26910.

The asking price is $59,900

I will post pictures bellow. Also, I have a few other pictures I can email out if anyone is interested.

Thanks for looking,

US GTSs were made late in the 74 model year only and then only in very small quantities, less than 100. It was the end of the Ford era and they did not sell very well; most ended up selling in 1975. Some were retitled to 73 for California delivery. The GTS VIN is the best way to tell.

They were exaxtly the same as all the rest of the 74Ls except they weighed more. They added the riveted on fiberglas flares, the semigloss black hood and deck lid, and the GTS graphics on the side of the car. That is it! European GTSs, now that's a whole different story but once again, extremely rare in the US.

Based on the number of cars that claim to be GTSs, you'd think they made a thousand of them.
