Interesting to see that one for sale again. As I recall it was a NY car a couple years ago. Seems like nice work. I like the modification to the rear quarter gill area (non there now and looks like they did a nice job on that part of the car). I suppose we guess the price as well.
Another photo from 2006, the engine bay was painted, however to me it seems kind of a funky job without the holes smoothed on the engine bay. Looks like nice attention to the car exterior, but some other aspects could have been done better. Bid up to $45K on ebay in 2006 with minimum not met. Does have steel flares though, which is nice, like I said, exterior looks nicely done, interior and engine bay could have been better.

They told another forum member to "keep his stupid comments to himself." Class act that dealership is.

Guess it depends who you talk to. I don't doubt a syllable of what's been said here, but I bought a car from them couple years back (twin turbo Porsche, but doesn't matter except that we're all car nerds) that got all the way here. In my driveway. Took my family to dinner. My son intrigued with the navigation.

The NEXT DAY in a town 300 miles away from the selling dealer, my dealer performs a PPI to qualify the car for a warranty. Finds probs, undetectable to the uninitiated.

They accepted the car back, like gentlemen, nearly a hundred grand went BACK across the table - again - sans name calling, threats, or vile gossip. I chalked that up to 'men being men.' I felt that the leadership at the dealer was clued into reality. Worth remembering when...

The Pantera is a car with needs, clearly. The spotters HERE are like, fifty times more educated than the dealership; let's be real. TELL THEM the issues, make a sane offer, and see what happens. I bet you a Blue Thunder the car's on consignmemt and they can 'grind' better than all of us combined.

Best wishes.
I'm new and will be looking for a car sometime in the next 3-4 months. The dealer told me the car was on consignment (along with an NSX and others from the same owner). Asking price was $68k when I called them this week.
My point was that when selling one of my cars I don't mine a serious buyer nit picking the car in person trying to work a deal. However seems a little annoying to tell a dealer all the problems with a car he has on consignment when there is no intention of buying it.

Kind of like bench shopping! Smiler
A couple of you noted that it had been for sale back in '06. Any guess what they were looking for then price wise? Also, I see what appears to be a fan motor sticking out through the trunk tub. Is this for the AC and, if so, why would they have had to cut the truck tub for this?

Seems like Pantera owners are a pretty close bunch - any other history on this car that anyone knows of?

It might be an aftermarket condenser which wouldn't fit inside the trunk tub (although it appears to be stock). My '71 has a seperate "enclosure" which attaches to the main tub. Maybe this has been removed for more room? Or....maybe the owner thought there wasn't enough air flow and the AC wasn't working correctly?

Here is another shot of the hood from when it was for sale in 2003 and again 2006. I must say, that part is a little funky to have them non functional and backward.


200 what are you talking about? Just cut the back out and you have a ram air for the engine roll on floor

Hey, good one Mark! Or just replace the vents with a supercharger, that aught a work. Others, I recall the car had no sale on ebay at $45K years ago. But that doesn't mean much. If you like what you see make an offa. I wouldn't bother with debating the fan issue as far as buying or not. If the engine bay is painted, the tub shouldn't be in there anyway.
went to see the car today. Looks pretty good but seems to be way overpriced. the paint is not perfect, actually there are quite a few problem spots between curb rash, bubbles and stress cracks. The drivers door wouldn't open from the outside, but it did start right up. sounded good too. We took it around the block and it ran pretty strong, they were telling me its a mostly stock car. The ZF shifted smoothly. The heater ran the whole time and the windows were really slow. Overall, I was really happy to see one up close and not only get to ride in one but drive it too. Boy are those pedals close together.

I think maybe in the 40-45K range but not 69.5K. Not for me.

And a big thanks to Jeff (Pantera 4134) for helping out.
