Completely different animal. One an original 'L' with 17k miles in my personal fav color, VS a ~restored~ with modern components [done tastefully] chrome bumper car. But like you say Gilles, the numbers don't lie. 

Kissimmee 6 weeks back. I sell there annually. Last year was my GTS shown on top of this page. S224 last year, S164 year before that. I have no competition. Always 6 figure sales but I make-em perfect so nobody can 'pick' at anything on stage.

With the advent of electric power steering, adding it to a Pantera has become fairly common. You'll find lots of info here in the forums. 

The Mecum sales are reported with buyer premium included so $132K all in, but like all good fishing stories $145K sounds much better! 

FYI to Norm and others

In years gone by, Steve Wilkinson did a few "hydraulic" power steering conversions, and even a few automatic transmission conversions.

But perhaps his conversion I liked the best was the dual pane rear window.
