Ford Rotunda 72 Pantera tool kit for sale on ebay
Replies sorted oldest to newest
your kit is the cleanest and the case and plastic liner are the best condition of any kit that I have seen. It would be a shame to destroy the liner during shipping, as happened with the kit I bought so many years ago. Those large metal tools will destroy that liner long before it is delivered to the buyer.
Earlier this year I stumbled across a kit that I resold to an owner in Utah. I shipped all of the tools in a flat rate USPS box. Very economical, VERY well packed and heavily wrapped with fiberglass reinforced tape to ensure package integrity. The large pipe piece did not fit and it was packaged by itself. The case should be shipped empty by itself. You ....might.... be able to leave the pipe in the case without shattering the liner if you pack it very well.
What activities are performed with these special tools?
For those that own them.... how often do you use them?
You should search Ford Rotunda 72 Pantera on eBay. It should bring it up. It is an auction. 6 days left. Thanks
admittedly, most of the tools in the kit are seldom needed by a Pantera owner. I have basically used them just once during rebuilding of a local owners car. I am sure the tools would’ve been handy for other owners, but despite hundreds of California owners I am not conveniently near to most of them to loan tools out for their projects.
Tools will allow you to correctly and safely disassemble/ assemble the rear uprights, remove/install a arm bushings, remove and install ball joints and disassemble the shock coil springs.
I think the ideal use for one of these kits is for it to be a loaner tool made available to your fellow local owners. When you kick the bucket, have your estate donate it as a targeted raffle prize for the next fun rally. 😉
In case anyone was wondering...
The set sold for $1027.00 + Shipping...
I have one of these sets, missing the axle nut tool ($75) and probably not as nice as this one. I have billet rear carriers with bolt on hub & bearings, so no use for much of the kit. I'd be happy to get $500 from someone active in the club. Preferably someone near LA so no shipping
that is a more than fair price and a good notion to see it going to someone who can share it with their nearby fellow owners.
The OEM plastic case for this tool set is totally and completely inadequate for shipping. Getting these kits spread out geographically so they are available to more owners would be a great thing.
