A set of these shocks came on one of my Pantera project cars.  Is anyone familiar with them?

I also think they are likely Koni  shocks. I took this photo from  Mike Dailey’s Panteraplace.com website 

Note the white, diamond shaped decal. Any remnants of that on your shocks?

I don't think they are Koni.  The height adjustment plate is aluminum with a threaded steel ring.  And the retaining plate on the other end are two pieces of aluminum.  The old red Koni shock are not height adjustable.  And the eyelet width is different than either of the Koni shocks above.  I think the red paint is throwing us off.

   These are Aldan Shock absorbers which were originally offered to the Pantera community by Hall Pantera back in the 1980's. They should not be run in the inverted - upside down configuration.

     Koni "street" issued shocks were Orange in color. Koni "competition" shocks were offered in either "yellow" or "red" in the late 1960's through late 1970's.

 

Yes, these are Aldan's, they shouldn't be run in any direction! 

These Aldan shocks are no longer on the car and I need them out of the garage.  Do you think they are of use to someone or should I scrap them?

Aldan does offer a rebuild service so I'm sure they could be of value to someone.
